The Marshall Police Department says on May 27, officers arrested Jessie Turlington, 42, on charges of accident involving damage to a vehicle and accident involving injury. Officials say on May 24, a Marshall patrol car was hit and pushed off the road by a dark-colored sedan at Durrell Street and E Grand Avenue. Police say the driver left the scene.
