UPDATE: 2 injured in wreck, including HCSO deputy

Jasper — UPDATE:

According to Hamilton County Sheriff Harrell Reid, both of the injured victims in yesterday’s crash on US 41 remain hospitalized, but in good condition.

Reid said by phone last night that HCSO Deputy Matthew Cribbs may have a broken collarbone, along with bumps and bruises, but he was otherwise doing OK.

Patricia Bishop, the female victim in the other vehicle, suffered head lacerations from broken glass, but was expected to possibly be released from the hospital today.

Reid visited both Cribbs and Bishop at Shands UF in Gainesville last night and said Bishop was more concerned about the deputy than her own injuries.

Previous story:

A two-vehicle crash involving a Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office deputy occurred earlier Wednesday afternoon on US 41 in Jasper, about a mile north of the center of town.

According to HCSO Sheriff Harrell Reid, one of his deputies was en route to a call in Jennings and traveling north on US 41 when witnesses said a dog darted out in front of him. The deputy, Matthew Cribbs, tried swerving to miss the dog and lost control of the vehicle, which began to rotate and then overturn numerous times.

As the vehicle was overturning it landed on top of a southbound vehicle driven by an unknown elderly female. Both injured victims were transported to Shands UF Trauma Center in Gainesville via helicopter, according to Reid.

No more information was available at press time.
