Deputy Crash Update
A McDowell County sheriff's deputy is recovering today after a car crash in Marion last night.
We're told the deputy was momentarily distracted when he approached the intersection of Railroad and West Henderson streets last night, hit another car, then crashed into a wall.
Neither the deputy nor the operator of the other vehicle sustained serious injury and damage to both vehicles was minimal. Both parties were treated and released from McDowell Hospital.
The deputy was cited subsequent to an investigation by Marion Police Department for failure to stop for a red light and our office continues to review the matter to determine what, if any, additional action might be warranted under the circumstances.
