Deputy and Inmate Involved In Car Crash

A Fannin County inmate being transported through Tyler Monday afternoon took an unplanned detour.

The police unit he was riding in crashed at the intersection of 69 South and Heritage street. The Fannin County deputy says a Honda Accord tried to turn left in front of him, and the police cruiser couldn't stop in time.

The inmate was taken to a local hospital with non life threatening injuries. The driver of the Honda Accord was ticketed for not yielding.
