DECATUR, Ala. (WHNT) – A  state trooper was involved in a hit and run accident on Wednesday afternoon in Decatur.

The trooper was going southbound around a very sharp curve on Chapel Hill Rd. when a red Honda Accord sideswiped him.  The car that hit the trooper kept driving.

The trooper lost control of his vehicle and ended up in a muddy field as a result of the crash.  Unable to get out of the damaged cruiser, the trooper called for help.  The trooper’s cruiser lost a side view mirror, but the trooper was unhurt.

Troopers are actively looking for a red Honda Accord with a broken mirror.

If you have any information regarding the red Accord, call the Alabama Department of Public Safety at (256) 353-0631.
