On 07-30-18 at 12:03 a.m., Deputy David Merced was traveling north on Shoal Line Boulevard when a deer in the roadway caused him to crash his patrol vehicle into a canal.

His patrol vehicle was partially submerged. 

Emergency personnel assisted Deputy Merced out of the vehicle and onto the roadway.

Deputy Merced was not injured in the crash. His vehicle was towed to the Sheriff’s Office garage for possible repairs.
