Deputies issued a non-criminal citation for failure to yield right of way to Gillies. They said it does not appear that either speed or impairment was a factor in the crash.
According to deputies, Zinge was on duty and driving her unmarked sheriff’s office 2013 Ford Fusion westbound on Main Street about 4:07 p.m. Gillies was driving his 2000 Ford Taurus
eastbound on Main Street. Gillies tried to make a northbound turn from Main onto Pinehurst Road, in front of Zinge’s Ford, causing the collision. Investigators said both westbound and eastbound traffic signals at Main and Pinehurst were green.
