Off-duty Ala. officer ejected, killed in crash

The officer was ejected from his personal vehicle when he collided with another vehicle


NORTHPORT, Al. — An off-duty Northport police officer who suffered severe injuries in a two-vehicle crash at Tierce Patton Road and Highway 69 has passed away, according to Northport police.

Lt. Tim Sullivan says 37-year-old Jimmy "Jason" Guin passed away Friday morning at 2:34 a.m.

Guin was driving his personal vehicle, a Ford Explorer, on Thursday morning around 6:39 a.m when he was involved in an accident with a Nissan Maxima. The officer was ejected from his vehicle. The woman driving the Nissan was uninjured.

Guin was transported to DCH in Tuscaloosa then airlifted to UAB Hospital in Birmingham.

Officials do not know how the wreck happened or who is at fault. No one has been charged in relation to the accident.

The Northport Police Department plans to release more information later today.

Guin's friends say they are planning to collect money at the Holly Jolly Market at the Northport Civic Center to help Guin's family with financial burdens.
