A Georgia sheriff’s deputy was killed early Wednesday when he crashed into a wall and was thrown from his patrol vehicle.
Bibb County Deputy Kenterrous Taylor, 27, was responding to a burglary call at the time of the crash, according to the Bibb sheriff’s office. He wrecked about 1:30 a.m., the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Authorities said Taylor struck a wall after losing control of his vehicle. The impact caused the cruiser to overturn, and Taylor was ejected, the sheriff’s office said in a news release.
Bibb County Sheriff David Davis arrived soon after the crash. He told WMAZ that Taylor was off-duty.
"This particular case, he was off-duty, and the call came out, and he responded and tragically lost his life," Davis said, emotionally.
