3 injured in collision involving deputy

None of the injuries believed to be life-threatening

Three people were injured late this morning in a collision between a sheriff's deputy and a minivan on Ga. Highway 314 at White Oak Way, just north of the Fayette Pavilion shopping center.

None of the injuries were life-threatening, but the deputy and two victims in minivan were taken to Atlanta Medical Center and Grady Hospital in downtown Atlanta, emergency medical officials said.

The deputy was responding to a reported shooting when the crash occurred, officials said.

The crash resulted in the temporary shutdown of all southbound traffic on Hwy. 314. The incident is being investigated by the Georgia State Patrol.

Probably a report OF shooting and not of A shooting.

The newest rule on shooting on your own property requires that you own 10 acres or more to fire a gun on the property.

The neighborhood I just moved from of 5 acre tracts has someone calling the Sheriff every time they hear a shot.

The old rules allowed shooting on at least 5 acres.

Thank God this wasn't worse.

I hope everyone comes out of all this with no continuing problems.
