12321482_906938386026251_467905345902147136_nOfficers responded to the scene of a two-car, head-on collision on Kennedy Drive, on Wednesday, Dec. 9 at 1:29 p.m.

During the investigation, officers learned that the drivers of the two cars had been playing ‘chicken’ with their vehicles when the accident occurred.

In the game of chicken, two vehicles drive toward each other on the same path of travel until one of them swerves to avoid contact. The driver of the car that swerves first is then labeled the ‘chicken’.
