VIDEO: Sergeant Killed By Truck Rolling Over on Cruiser

Emergency crews were on the scene of a deadly crash for several hours Wednesday in Monroe, N.C., where a tractor-trailer overturned onto a Union County deputy's cruiser. The Union County Sheriff’s Office identified the man involved as Sgt. Jeffrey Wayne Greene, 54, reports WSOC-TV.

According to troopers, the deputy was stopped at a westbound traffic light in the left turn lane with a Kia in the lane to the right and a tanker truck two lanes to the right. The tractor-trailer approached the intersection westbound and for unknown reasons was unable to stop.

Troopers said the driver of the tractor-trailer made an evasive maneuver to the left to avoid slamming into the back of the tanker, which caused the tractor-trailer to overturn. It landed partially on the Kia and more directly on the deputy's car.

Troopers said the deputy died on scene in the cruiser.

When it's your time, it's your time. My condolences to the Deputy's family and to his agency.
