A deputy from the Broward Sheriff’s Office required transportation to the hospital after sustaining injuries in an auto accident on Sunrise Blvd. Monday evening, according to the CBS 4 news website. The deputy reportedly had the emergency lights flashing on his patrol car when it collided with an SUV on NW 13th St. Following the Broward County auto accident, the deputy was taken to Broward General Medical Center, and two others received transportation to Plantation General Hospital. All three sustained non-life threatening injuries in the crash, which was still under investigation at the time of the report.
Since the officer was in his police cruiser and appears to have been on-duty at the time of the crash, he may be able to file a workers’ compensation claim, pending the results of the investigation.
