Camera catches Smart Car smashing into deputy's cruiser



PALM COAST, Fla. - A red light camera captured a former Palm Coast City Councilman slam into a Flagler County deputy's patrol car, while driving a Smart Car.

The video came from a camera at the intersection of Palm Coast Parkway and Belle Terre Parkway (map of intersection) in Palm Coast.

The deputy stopped briefly at a red light, then pulled into the intersection and was T-boned by William Venne's Smart Car.

Florida Highway Patrol troopers said Venne had the green light, but the deputy's emergency lights were flashing.

Both drivers suffered minor injuries.
