SLIDELL, LA (WLOX) - Four Harrison County Sheriff's patrol cars were damaged in an early morning chain reaction accident Wednesday. Sheriff Melvin Brisolara says it happened about 6am on I-10 in Slidell.
Several patrol cars and 16 deputies were on the way to New Orleans for a conference when the deputies tried to avoid a stalled car on the interstate. That lead to four of the cars ramming into each other. None of the deputies were hurt, but two of cars had to be towed back to the coast, according to the sheriff.
Ironically, the deputies were on their way to a Street Survival course when the wreck occurred.
