No Charges Against Deputy Who Caused Crash

A deputy with the Wake County Sheriff’s Office was involved in a two car crash Friday afternoon on Highway 210 near the Johnston-Harnett County line.

Deputy J.P. Carlisle Jr. was traveling eastbound on Highway 210 in Johnston County when he ran into the back of a car that had stopped in the roadway to turn left onto Peed Lane.

The driver of the other vehicle, Gayle Cooke Kanon, 73, of Angier was injured in the crash and taken by ambulance to Johnston Medical Center in Clayton.

Deputy Carlisle, 26, of Angier was not injured.

According to an accident report, troopers estimated Deputy Carlisle was traveling at 45mph in a 55mph zone when he slammed into Kanon’s 2003 Ford that was at a complete stop.  After the impact, the Ford was knocked off the roadway into a ditch. The deputy’s 2015 Dodge Charger came to rest 87 feet from the point of impact.

Damage to the Wake County deputy cruiser was placed at $5,000. The Ford also sustained $5,000 in damages.

No charges were filed against the deputy although the accident report indicated he failed to reduce speed to avoid the collision.


  1. That’s a load of crap any body else would have been charged with failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident and god knows what else. Classic crooked JoCo

    • Yup! I just got charged with that the first week of this month. I wasn’t even going 15mph in my wreck and still got a ticket. My car was NO where near as messed up at this cop’s car. You can’t even tell I rear ended someone on mine. This is a shame for him not to have gotten a ticket. Just goes to show the saying ” it’s all in who you know” SMDH

  2. I’m sorry that happened but he should be charged, anyone else would. I guess he’s above the law.

  3. Seriously??? not charged??? he WAS in fault and it was a rear end collision, WHY WHY WHY is he NOT being charged!!!!! If it had been anyone other that law enforcement he would have been!!!!
