    PERRY, Ga. -- Peach County Sheriff's Captain Tony Trice is seriously injured after a car accident in Houston County last Friday.

    Peach County Sheriff's Office says Trice was traveling south around 3 p.m. on Highway 341 near its intersection with Dogwood Dr. in Perry. Trice was stopped behind a vehicle that was turning left onto Dogwood Dr. when his vehicle was struck from behind.

    Deputies say the impact knocked his county-issued vehicle into the vehicle in front of him, spinning him into the northbound lane where he was hit head-on by a pickup truck traveling north.

    Capt. Trice had to be extricated from his vehicle, deputies say. He sustained two broken arms, a fractured left pelvis and bruised lungs.
