A Carroll County, IN, Sheriff’s deputy and a jail deputy died early Saturday morning on State Road 26 in Sedalia.
Clinton Co. officials say a Rossville Deputy Town Marshal was trying to do a traffic stop on State Road 26, but the driver didn’t stop, so the Town Marshal called for backup.
Carroll Co. Sheriff’s Deputy Noah Rainey was on the way to assist, when his vehicle went off the road and hit a utility pole. Jail Deputy Dane Northcutt was also inside the vehicle, but he was not on duty at the time, Fox 59 reports.
When other officers arrived to help, they found both men and tried to save their lives. But, Deputy Rainey and Jail Deputy Northcutt were pronounced dead at the scene.
