Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office deputies emerged unharmed after a patrol car flipped in an accident.
On Friday, a deputy and recruit were traveling Northbound on 301 in Tampa, on their way to assist on a separate call, when they pulled up to a red light on Palm River Road.
At the traffic light, the deputy looked both ways before deciding it was safe to proceed. During that turn at the traffic light, a grey Honda struck HCSO vehicle; the impact caused it to flip on its side.
The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said due to the deputies’ commitment to safety and some miraculous luck, everyone emerged from the scene without any injury.
“Our deputies face unpredictable challenges daily while always demonstrating remarkable poise and dedication,” said Sheriff Chad Chronister. “We’re beyond grateful that this incident ended with everyone safe and sound.”
