Description of Incident:

The Broward Sheriff's Office family is grieving the loss of a BSO deputy who died after being involved in a crash while on duty early Sunday morning.

Around 3 a.m. July 21, the BSO Deerfield Beach deputy was responding to a call of a domestic dispute. He and another deputy, driving separate BSO vehicles, were headed southbound on Military Trail approaching the intersection of Southwest 10th Street. As the first BSO vehicle made its way through the intersection, it crashed with a Toyota Tundra that was headed eastbound on Southwest 10th Street.  The second BSO deputy, who witnessed the crash, immediately called for help.

Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue transported the deputy and the sole occupant of the pickup to Broward Health North.  The BSO deputy succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead at the hospital. The driver of the pickup has been hospitalized but is said to be stable.

BSO traffic homicide detectives are investigating the cause of the collision.

The names of both drivers are being temporarily withheld.

Anyone who was in the area of the crash and has any information regarding this incident is asked to contact BSO Traffic Homicide Detective Carlos De Jesus at 954-321-4842.
