6:33 am
@i am joined by larry mckinnon @from the hick sheriff's @department. @what happened this morning, @larry? @>> well, first of all, our @thoughts and prayers go out to @the family of this deputy. @and the other victim who caused @the crash, but what we know now @is that the deputy had just @finished a traffic -- he was a @traffic investigator. @he was coming back from tampa @general hospital, heading back @to his patrol district in @ruskin. @apparently this wrong-way @driver got on the crosstown as @you mentioned on the upper deck @which is the reversible, and @depending on the location of it @-- it could be anywhere from 50 @to 65 miles per hour and what @it appears now that they struck @completely head on. @the driver of the wrong-way @vehicle died at the scene and @our deputy died at the @hospital. @>> reporter: larry, you were @showing some photos of me of @the deputy's vehicle, barely @recognizable. @tell us what happened as they @tried to save him? @>> well, hillsborough county @fire rescue did an amazing job
6:34 am
@quickly and get him to the @hospital. @you will release the pictures @later and you can see the @majority of the damage that you @will see in that vehicle was @from the crash. @the crashed vehicle missing the @roof. @the deputy's vehicle missing @the roof, but other than that, @it literally looks what on @these vehicles from an ied like @it is completely blown up. @we know that the front end of @the vehicle was pushed almost @all the way back to the front @driver's seat. @so a very violent impact and @just unfortunate that we @continue to see these type of @crashes throughout our @community. @and they are so easily @avoidable. @right now we are looking to see @whether the wrong-way drive was @impaired or not. @that is still under @investigation. @>> reporter: larry, i know it @must be tough any time you come @across one of these accidents @or one of these crashes, but @especially when a deputy is @involved, i would imagine. @>> i have been doing this a @long time and it never gets any @easier. @i think what really drives it @home for all of us regardless @of who it is that these are @crashes that can be easily
6:35 am
@you know, the vast majority of @these days are drivers that are @impaired @impaired, and it just goes to @show that we are no more immune @to it than anybody else in the @public, and are are, of course, @we continuously operate of @these peak hours of the bar @closing and what not and we @worry about getting shot and @worry about all the other @things that go on in our @career, but here is an example @right now that i think it is @the second or third leading @cause of death for law @enforcement are these traffic @crashes. @and when it is one that could @have been avoided, it makes it @even worse. @>>reporter: absolutely. @100% avoidable crashes. @for now reporting live out in @tampa. @now i do want to actually @mention what is closed right @now. @so the westbound pouring @so the westbound portions of @the selmon expressway will be @opening back up soon, and we @are told for the next four to @five hours, the eastbound lanes @will be closed down, so just @plan accordingly if you were @traveling through this area @and, of course, our thoughts @and prayers are with the drives
