Robert Hathorn was just trying to drop off money to renew his subscription to the Leader-Call on Tuesday when he was involved in a minor fender-bender with none other than the Mayor of Laurel, Johnny Magee. 

The accident took place at the corner of Oak and North Magnolia streets, in front of Pearl’s Diner and a couple doors down from the Leader-Call office. Magee and Hathorn were both uninjured, but the Mayor’s black SUV suffered a sizable dent.

LPD officer Michelle Howell responded to the incident.
