“We have reviewed the in-car camera system and it appears the deputy had reached a speed of 92 M.P.H. at one point prior to the crash,” Cox said in a news release.

“We will further review the accident report in addition to our office policies as we review all internal accidents,” Cox said.

“Fortunately this was a one-car crash and no one was seriously injured. Deputy Graham’s pride and body are probably rather sore today but we a re glad he is OK.”

    I know that lives often depend on how quickly an officer can arrive, and I know this one happened out of town, but I’ll never forget the time I saw a Saint Joseph police officer plowing down 10th street at high speed, popped over a hill so fast that he had to swerve around a woman who was holding a baby as she crossed the road. He didn’t even need to be going that fast because his destination was on the very same block as the woman he almost hit. What was he being called to protect us from? A man drinking a beer on his front porch. Worth a potential traffic accident? I don’t think so.
