Fort Campbell Soldiers Crash into Police Cruiser

Clarksville, TN – Three Fort Campbell soldiers were injured over the weekend when they struck a parked Clarksville police car on westbound I-24 early Saturday morning. Clarksville officers were helping with traffic control for a two car accident on the interstate, between exit 8 and 11 westbound, when a 2005 Lincoln driven by 20-year-old Kenneth Davis of Fort Campbell struck a unoccupied stationary patrol car. The patrol car's blue lights were on as were the vehicle's signal lights. The collision pushed the police car into the vehicle ahead of it. Davis and his passengers, two other Fort Campbell soldiers, were taken to the hospital with non life threatening injuries. Authorities in the ongoing investigation say alcohol may have been a factor in the crash. Charges against Davis are pending.
