An Alcorn County sheriff’s deputy was injured when he crashed his patrol vehicle during a pursuit early Sunday, Sheriff Ben Caldwell said.
The injured deputy, Riley Jeter, was transported to Magnolia Regional Health Center after crashing into a guardrail on the driver’s side on County Road 427, Caldwell said.
The driver was not captured and was driving an older model silver Nissan truck with a white driver’s-side door. Anyone with information on the whereabouts of the truck is asked to call the sheriff’s office at 662-286-5521.
Deputy Jeter originally stopped the truck on School Street in Rienzi for having no tag, Caldwell said. The truck initially stopped but then took off as the deputy approached the vehicle.
The deputy pursued the truck, which traveled down County Road 409 where a bridge is out. The truck was able to cross the area where the bridge was out by traveling through a ditch, Caldwell said. Deputy Jeter turned his patrol car around at this point, and another sheriff’s deputy picked up the pursuit.
Deputy Jeter wrecked his vehicle while attempting to back up the other deputy in the pursuit. Jeter suffered fractures to the hip area and was still in the hospital but fortunately in good condition Sunday afternoon, Caldwell said.
