DEERFIELD BEACH (CBSMiami) – A Broward Sheriff’s Office deputy has died following an on-duty crash in Deerfield Beach.
The accident happened near Military Trail and Southwest 10th Street at approximately 3 a.m. Sunday.
Pictures from the scene indicate a violent crash in which both the deputy’s SUV cruiser and a pickup truck had heavy damage.
BSO says the deputy, who has been with the department for about a year and works with the Deerfield Beach district, was responding to a domestic violence call.
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 collided with a Toyota Tundra pickup truck that was headed eastbound on Southwest 10th Street.
The second BSO deputy witnessed the crash and immediately called for help.
It’s not clear whether either BSO vehicle had his lights on.
