A deputy trying to do his job fell victim to the actions of another drunken driver. Around 4:46 a.m., the store manager at Love’s Truck Stop on U.S. 1 called for help as he noticed a customer to be clearly intoxicated with the intent to continue driving.
When the deputy arrived, he placed his patrol car in front of the perpetrator’s, prompting the perpetrator to try and flee by backing out. In the process of backing out, he pinned the deputy against the gas pump. He then fled the scene, driving the wrong way down U.S. 1, only to be eventually stopped with stop-sticks near Nova Road and Old Kings road.
Although initial reports do not indicate the status of the deputy’s possible injuries, there is no denying that people sustain injuries far too often because of the acts of an intoxicated person. It is because of this that the proper preparations are of that much more the essence.
