Christopher Ferguson, an off-duty cop in Algood, Tenn., going 20 miles over the speed limit, will not be inconvenienced after ramming into James and Rena Cryer's SUV with such force James was thrown into the road. Amazingly, the elderly couple survived—and District Attorney General Bryant Dunaway found them at fault.
“Both of them did things they shouldn’t have done, and both of them violated the law,” said Dunaway, who represents the 13th judicial district. “They violated the rules of the road.”
Cryer failed to yield, according to the THP. The investigative report, obtained by the News 4 I-Team, also found Ferguson was speeding.
Documents state at one point, Ferguson was traveling up to 26 miles over the speed limit.
“If the officer had been driving the posted speed limit…the collision would have been avoided,” an investigator wrote.
“Even with this knowledge, you still felt comfortable not prosecuting?” asked reporter Alanna Autler.
“Even with that knowledge, yes,” Dunaway replied.
Lucky not to be charged with vandalizing police property! Ferguson, as I'm sure you've already guessed, reportedly has a history of similar mistakes.
