ENGLEWOOD, FL – Two Charlotte County deputies were involved in a accident while responding to an emergency call of an individual laying in the roadway of the 4200 block of South Access Road in Englewood.
SPONSOR: UNITED PATRIOT
According to authorities, the call was placed to dispatch at 8:37 last evening, Tuesday, February 22, reporting a potentially unresponsive subject laying in the roadway. Two deputies patrolling the Englewood area were dispatched to the scene. While responding with lights and sirens, the patrol vehicles collided at the intersection of Cervantes Street and South McCall Road. The impact caused one vehicle to rollover, and both landed in a nearby ditch. Both deputies were unharmed and no community members were involved.
I’m extremely relieved that both deputies were unharmed. We have an entire team of dedicated members who devote their lives to creating a safer community. Oftentimes, just responding can be dangerous.
