Cocke County arguably experienced the worst of Wednesday's winter weather in East Tennessee.  The snow got the best of many drivers, including an officer with the Newport Police Department.

The officer was unable to stop the police vehicle while driving through a snow-covered parking lot and ran into a storage container that belongs to a church.

The crash caused minor damage to the container and the front of the police cruiser, but nobody was hurt.

Correction and Reporter's Note:  This story originally included images that misidentified the vehicle involved Wednesday's wreck.  The story showed a different police cruiser parked at the Newport Police Department with minor damage to the front of the vehicle.  The photo of the incorrect vehicle has been removed and we apologize to everyone for the error.
