Police chief checks Blackberry, hits car
FEDERAL WAY, Wash. -- The police chief of the south Seattle suburb of Federal Way has issued a public apology for a minor traffic accident that happened while he was checking his BlackBerry in his unmarked police car.
Apparently police chief Brian Wilson stopped for a red light March 18 and glanced down at his BlackBerry to view e-mails. He then took his foot off the brake and collided with the car in front of him.
The Seattle Times reports no one was injured and the cars weren't damaged.
The police chief says he takes full responsibility.
