Medical problem may be to blame for Wilmington cop’s crashes

Tuesday, May 21st, 2013

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A Wilmington Police officer is still on administrative leave after not one but two car accidents last week, including one while she was on duty.

Investigators think they have an idea what led to the single-car crashes involving Ofc. Adrienne Dillon.

Thursday she went off the road in her unmarked cruiser on Market Street in Porters Neck and hit a bench knocking it into a business’s window. Investigators say she then drove to a drugstore about a half mile away.

Two nights later she went off the road in her personal car.

Highway Patrol says she was not texting, nor was Dillon impaired. Investigators think there may be a medical issue to blame.

Troopers have charged Dillon with failure to maintain control within a single lane and leaving the scene of an accident for Thursday’s crash and failure to maintain control within a single lane for Saturday’s accident.

Dillon, 34, has been employed by the Wilmington Police Department since 2003. She has been assigned to the Criminal Investigations Division since 2009.
