A sheriff’s deputy in Florida was killed in a crash Monday, just one shift before he deliberate to retire.
Corporal Brian LaVigne, 54, a 30-year veteran of the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Division, was responding to a report of a disturbance, officers stated.
In keeping with Hillsborough County Sheriff Chad Chronister, 28-year previous Travis Garrett was bare and throwing cookies at his neighbors from outdoors of his house.
After fleeing from deputies in his automobile, Garrett sped “as quick as he might make that automobile go” onto close by Lumsden Highway—and “deliberately” struck the motive force’s facet of LaVigne’s cruiser, Chronister stated.
LaVigne was unresponsive on the scene. He was taken to Tampa Normal Hospital, the place he died from his accidents.
He’s survived by a spouse and two daughters.
