Lake County Deputy Injured in Single Car Crash

By Orlando Auto Accident Lawyer on April 17, 2018

A single-vehicle crash that took place early on Thursday morning resulted in the hospitalization of a deputy working for the Lake County Sheriff’s Department.  According to a report from the Florida Highway Patrol, the deputy was on duty and in an official police vehicle when the incident occurred that sent the car off of the road and into a pair of trees, after which the cruiser overturned.

The deputy, a 45-year-old man from Tavares, was driving the marked 2017 Ford SUV down the western lane of Dewey Robbins Road at around 5:00 in the morning when he neared the intersection of Dewey Robbins Road and U.S. Highway 27.  For reasons that are not clear, it was shortly before or shortly after passing through this intersection that the deputy lost control of their vehicle.  The car then departed from the roadway.

Before the deputy was able to regain control of the vehicle, the cruiser collided with a tree that was growing near the road.  The force of the collision caused the SUV to roll over, during which time it collided with another tree.

Either witnesses to the crash or the deputy themselves were able to reach emergency response services shortly after the incident took place, and soon first responders from throughout the nearby Lake County area were on hand to assist the officer and assess the damage.  It is believed that the deputy was injured in the incident and taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center.  The report made sure to mention that the deputy was wearing a seatbelt, a fact which very likely prevented them from suffering from even more serious injuries as a result of the collision.

At the time of this writing, the reports currently available suggest that the extent of the injuries experienced by the officer is not highly worrisome.  We know that the injuries were classified as being minor when the officer was admitted to the hospital for treatment, a fact which will likely not change as they receive medical care.

The report did not speculate on how much time is likely to elapse before this particular officer is able to return to duty, nor did it speculate on just what caused the single-car collision in the first place.
