When the Georgia State Patrol responds to a motor vehicle accident, the last thing they expect is to find one of their own in trouble. Sadly, that is what happened on November 1 when police received information about a DeKalb County accident at the Perimeter Mall located on Alford Dunwoody Road.
When the police arrived on the scene, they could clearly see that there had been a serious crash. All they knew going into the accident scene was that there had been a pedestrian who had been hit.
Apparently, a Dekalb County police officer had been at the scene cleaning up debris, possibly from a previous accident. He was astride his police motorcycle and had his lights flashing. Out of nowhere, a car came down the road and plowed right into the officer’s bike.
The impact of the crash was significant. In fact, it was so strong, it ejected the officer from his bike.
The young man driving the errant vehicle was 20-year-old Yexon Munoz Enamorado. When the police first started their investigation, they realized that Enamorado was driving without a license. He was arrested for driving while unlicensed and was taken to the DeKalb County jail.
The reports have not yet released the name of the officer. However, they did confirm he had been taken to the hospital with what was described as non-life-threatening injuries. They also indicated that they expect him to survive his injuries.
The authorities did not indicate if alcohol or speed played a role in the DeKalb County accident. Enamorado claimed that he couldn’t see the officer’s bike because traffic was too heavy.
