CARROLLTON — We now know that a Carrollton police officer who was seriously injured in a crash last month ran a red light right before his patrol car was struck by another vehicle.
The March 14 incident at Whitlock Lane and Old Denton Road was captured by a dash-mounted camera in Officer Matt Bonner's cruiser. That recording was released on Monday.
The department said Bonner was not headed to an emergency and did not have his flashing lights or siren on.
The officer is still recovering from injuries suffered in the crash, but should be back to work eventually.
The other driver suffered minor injuries.
