Former City Councilman in Smart ForTwo T-Bones a Ford Crown Vic Interceptor

A red light camera caught an accident between a 2008 Smart ForTwo mini and a Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor that occurred on September 12, 2012, in Palm Coast City, Florida. The footage shows a Flagler County Sheriff’s Ford cruiser driven by Deputy Darrell Butler, 26, making its way through the traffic with the car’s emergency lights activated. Being that he had a red light, Butler proceeded rather carefully and slowly through the intersection but that wasn’t enough, as a Smart ForTwo driven by William Venne, 80, a former member of the Palm Coast City Council (from 2000 to 2007), came speeding from the west bound lane and t-boned the police car. According to a report from Flagler Live, both men suffered only minor injuries and were released from the hospital on the same day. The two cars are said to have sustained $10,000 in damages each.
