Other accidents were reported earlier in the morning, as well as a possible robbery that was called in at approximately 9:30 a m. The robbery was later reported to be the result of a domestic dispute. “We had three people this morning and there were five accidents. We also worked a robbery. All of these take a couple ot people, ne said. Wommack said the officers called in a detective to help with patrols. He said there arc normally four officers ai patrol during the day, but one officer was at a training school. “The most we would ever have is five and that wouldn’t have been enough,” he said. “There was one accident where it took 30 minutes fa us to get to it,” he said. “Sometimes people do get angry.. .We go to calls where there is a possibility of life threatening injuries first,” he said Wommack said days such as Thursday have happened before, especially when the day is rainy. He said calls stack up at least a couple of times each week on the day shift. Six accidents were reported yesterday between 7:45 a.m. and 9:51 a m.
