Alameda County Deputy Hit By Inmate Bus, In Critical Condition
(BANT) – A veteran Alameda County sheriff’s deputy is in critical condition on life support after being struck by a transportation vehicle at Santa Rita Jail in Dublin early this morning, a sheriff’s spokesman said.
The incident happened at about 6 a.m. at the transportation yard behind the jail near Broder Boulevard, Sgt. Ray Kelly said.
An investigation into the accident is being conducted but no further details are available at this time, Kelly said.
The injured deputy is being treated at John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek, where a large group of other deputies have gathered to support the deputy and his family, according to Kelly.
The injured deputy has been with the sheriff’s office “for many years,” Kelly said.
