Accident involving semi-truck injures Smyrna police officer

SMYRNA, GA – A Smyrna police officer was hospitalized after being hurt in an accident involving a semi-truck Thursday morning, the Marietta Daily Journal reported.

This is an update to a previous story.

Authorities say first responders removed Officer Philip Colburn from his patrol car after the semi-truck flipped over at the intersection of Atlanta Road and Windy Hill Road, trapping him inside the car.

Colburn was released Thursday afternoon from Kennestone Hospital after being treated for non-life-threatening injuries, his father said.

The Cobb Police Department is investigating the accident.
