Clayton County Deputy Injured in Alleged Head-on Drunk Driving Crash
Posted on Apr 03, 2012
A Clayton County Sherriff’s Deputy was critically injured in a head-on Coweta County motor vehicle accident last month. According to accident reports, Deputy Amy Kemper was riding her Harley in the northbound lane of Highway 29, near Lake Ridge Way, in Coweta County when she was hit by a Chevrolet Blazer driven by Christopher Lynn Brown. The accident occurred on Saturday, March 10, 2012.
The Georgia State Patrol investigated the accident and officers report that Mr. Brown was traveling southbound on Highway 29 when he crossed into the northbound lanes, left the road, hit a mailbox and then reentered the northbound lanes and collided with Deputy Kemper head-on. Mr. Brown then, allegedly, kept driving for about a mile before he stopped.
Deputy Kemper was airlifted to Atlanta Medical Center from the scene of the accident. She faced multiple surgeries in the days following her accidents and was reported to be in critical but stable condition. Deputy Kemper had recently received a promotion in the Clayton County Sherriff’s Office and is currently the Supervisor of Student Resource Officers.
Mr. Brown is currently being held without bond. He is facing various charges including DUI, reckless driving, leaving the scene of an accident causing serious injury, and serious injury by vehicle.
Our Atlanta accident injury lawyers extend our best wishes to Deputy Amy Kemper for a full and fast recovery from her Coweta County accident injuries, and we hope that she will recover and be able to return to work soon.
