Nolte gave this description at the scene:

“Ten minutes to 5, officers were dispatched to the Ameristop here at the corner of Clovernook and Compton Road. Trouble with a customer detail," Nolte said.

"Officers were responding to that when one of the officers came through the intersection here and had an auto accident.

"As customary for our department, we called the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Department to investigate. They’ll handle the investigation. We won’t be commenting any further on any parts of the investigation. They’ll be carrying that.”
