FDL Police Officer Not At Fault In Accident
The dash cam in the squad car of a Fond du Lac Police officer was rolling when his squad was hit by another driver Tuesday night in Fond du Lac. Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Captain Rick Olig says they were asked to investigate and the video from the dash cam in the Officer’s squad car and information stored to the hard drive in the squad told them a lot about the accident. Olig says the video and other driving information is saved to the hard drive in the squad when the lights are turned on or the squad is involved in a significant event. Officer Jared Pfalzgraf and the other driver 44-year-old Nairobi Hull of Fond du Lac were both taken to St. Agnes Hospital where they were treated and released. Hull was arrested afterwards for driving under the influence causing injury. She’s facing other traffic charges too after going through a flashing red traffic light at the intersection of 2nd and Macy Streets.
The Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Department continues to investigate a two-car crash in the City of Fond du Lac that involved a Fond du Lac Police Officer, but the preliminary investigation would indicate the officer wasn’t at fault. Sheriff’s officials say the officer, 24-year-old Jared Pfalzgraf, was doing a routine patrol and heading south on Macy Street within the 25 mile per hour speed limit. As he entered the intersection at 2nd Street his squad car was struck by a vehicle driven by 44-year-old Nairobi Hull of Fond du Lac. She failed to stop for a flashing red traffic light. Both were taken to St. Agnes Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Hull was arrested for operating under the influence causing injury and was cited for several traffic violations. The accident happened at 8:08 p.m. Tuesday night.
