A Greene County (Ind.) Sheriff's deputy who fell asleep at the wheel wrecked his patrol vehicle early Thursday morning.
The accident occurred on State Road 54 near the intersection with County Road 625E in Center Township.
Deputy Brad Deckard, 28, was traveling west about 4:08 a.m. when he lost control of his 2007 Ford Explorer and struck a ditch, an embankment, and utility pole. His patrol vehicle came to rest on the driver's side and then caught fire.
