JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Sept. 13 (UPI) -- Sheriff's deputies in Florida can attest that bad things do happen in threes after a spate of misfortunes left three cruisers crumpled within 24 hours.

The rash of crashes started Tuesday when Officer Chris Hancock of the Jacksonville, Fla., sheriff's office was hurt when another officer smacked into his patrol car while attempting to avoid a suspect during a high-speed chase, The (Jacksonville) Times-Union reported Thursday.

On Wednesday, an unmarked sheriff's vehicle was rear-ended at a traffic light, leaving Officer Douglas Cullen with a sore back. That was followed by a third incident in which another unmarked car overturned after being hit by a vehicle that allegedly ran a red light. The officer in that accident was treated for non-life-threatening injuries, the newspaper said.
