Farmville Police Chief Injured In Saw Accident

The Farmville police chief is off duty for now after severing three fingers using a saw, according to a newspaper report.

Chief Donnie Greene lost parts of three of his fingers when he was using an undercut saw Oct. 8, according to the Daily Reflector. Surgeons were able to reattach the top of Greene's middle finger, the paper reported.

The paper says the accident happened when the saw hit a nail and jumped back onto Greene's left hand.

Greene hopes to return to light duty soon.
