A Covington County (Ala.) Sheriff's deputy who was killed in a two-vehicle crash Friday morning is being identified as Dep. William Heath Kelley, according to Alabama State Troopers, reports WSFA-TV.

Troopers say Kelley was killed while on duty when his patrol car and another vehicle crashed around 7:40 a.m. on Alabama Highway 55. The crash was near the intersection of Hwy. 55 and South Bypass.

The driver of the second vehicle, a white SUV, was also transported to an area hospital with injuries that are described as non-life-threatening.

Kelley was en route to a report of a crash with injuries and an overturned vehicle when he lost control and crashed his unit.

ODMP.org reports that the deputy's cruiser hydroplaned.

Cancel road accidents not hard to do because a similar system currently works in the agricultural sector.
I'm talking about using Precision Farming for Precision Traffic.
Mathematical examination of the passage shows that the Precision traffic less complex than Precision Agriculture from the known rule that in the
The Precision traffic system educates and instills a driving culture.
Precision traffic system reduces the time length of learning in dimensions of months.Form of education in the proposed system is similar to addition of hundreds of thousands of traffic policemen.
The system works on the basis of personal mentoring.
Any errant driver will be assigned a "policeman mentor".
The policeman will be a virtual policeman but will be fully present.
"Big Brother Effect" will be treated thoroughly and virtual cop appears only when the driver goes through.
The report would be sent directly to the driver at the address listed at the DMV.

This is not the place for an advertisement, particularly in such bad English.

Rest in peace Deputy Kelley.
