JASPER, AL (WBRC) -

The Jasper Police Chief has confirmed to FOX6 News that an officer was involved in a two-vehicle accident Wednesday afternoon.

Chief Connie Rowe says that Lt. Justin Tidwell collided with a Lexus this afternoon while responding to a call of an alleged gunman at a medical office. The accident occurred near T.R. Simmons Elementary at Indiana Avenue and Viking Drive.

He and the couple in the other vehicle, identified as Guy and Irene Robbins of Jasper, were taken to UAB. Authorities say all three suffered non life-threatening injuries and were taken to UAB for treatment.

As for the original call about an alleged gunman at a medical office, police never located this person. They did lock down several nearby offices, which included other medical offices and a pharmacy, while they conducted a search. T.R. Simmons Elementary was also placed on lockdown due to its close proximity to the clinic where the original call came from.
