On July 5, 2016 at approximately 2:54 a.m., Deputy Yvette Hibbard was at Balm Riverview Rd and Panther Trace Blvd when a citizen struck the driver's side of her car, between the front and rear door. Units responded to the scene and requested EMS emergency as Deputy Hibbard was pinned inside of her vehicle. HCFR responded and had to use the jaws of life to cut the vehicle in a way that Deputy Hibbard could be removed from the vehicle. Deputy Hibbard was transported to TGH with non-life-threatening injuries. The other driver was not injured. The investigation continues into the cause of the crash and charges are pending.
