Collision Involving Allison Carter and Officer David Hall

Date of News Release: 03/21/2007

(Bowling Green) - The Kentucky State Police has completed in detail the report and speed estimates calculated on the collision between Bowling Green Police Officer David Hall and Allison Carter, which occurred in April of 2006.

The conclusions drawn are as follows:

Officer Hall was Northbound on Kentucky Street, at an estimated speed of 47 M.P.H. He was responding to the area of a hit and run collision to attempt to locate the run vehicle. During his response, Officer Hall did not have his emergency equipment activated. At the time of the collision, Officer Hall had the right of way through the intersection.

Allison Carter was Westbound on 13th Street crossing Kentucky Street. Information gained from the air bag control module and our investigation showed that Carter slowed to 9 M.P.H. as she approached the stop sign on 13th Street. but then accelerated to a speed of 13 M.P.H. at impact. Carter disregarded the traffic control device by not stopping at the posted stop sign.

The Kentucky State Police investigation is complete.

After a review of all the circumstances surrounding the motor vehicle collision between Officer David Hall and Allison Carter, the Commonwealth's Attorney Chris Cohron has determined that there is no criminal conduct arising out of this event, and the report will not be presented to the Warren County Grand Jury.
