FLORENCE — A Colbert County sheriff’s deputy was injured in a one-car accident Wednesday night, officials said.
State troopers said Durand Deon Prince, 21, of Florence, was injured when the patrol car he was driving flipped. The accident occurred at 9:40 p.m. near Rickard Cutoff Road and Mount Hester Road, south of Cherokee.
Prince was taken to Eliza Coffee Memorial Hospital in Florence where he was treated and later released, hospital officials said Thursday.
Sheriff Ronnie May said Prince was responding to a residence on White Pike to assist a deputy on a domestic dispute call.
“Apparently, he came off of Rickard Cutoff, lost control and flipped over the patrol car,” May said. “We’re just glad he is all right.”
