Both vehicles were unoccupied at the time and the officers, as well as the other driver, were uninjured.

The Gwinnett Police Department says it wants to remind drivers of the Georgia Move-Over Law. The law requires drivers to move over one lane when possible if an emergency vehicle with flashing lights is parked on or near the roadway.


If traffic is too heavy to move over safely, the law requires drivers to slow down below the posted speed limit instead and to be prepared to stop.
