More details released about Rockingham County deputy injured in crash
STOKESDALE, N.C. – A Rockingham County deputy was taken to the hospital after being in a crash with a truck early Saturday morning, according to authorities.
Deputy Doss was taken to Moses Cone hospital with serious, but non-life threatening injuries, according to North Carolina State Highway Patrol Master Trooper Chris Knox.
The deputy was responding to a collision on Hwy 220 at about 12:18 a.m. when he was involved in a crash with a bobtail, which is a tractor without the attached trailer.
The truck’s driver tried to turn right onto Hwy 220 from Snatcher’s Sales and Service Parking Lot in the Gold Hill Road area and pulled into the path of the deputy and the two crashed, according to Knox.
The driver of the truck has been identified as Kevin Mays of Hickory, N.C. He was cited with making an unsafe movement after being checked for minor injuries at Moses Cone.
It does not look like speed, alcohol or distractions were involved, according to Knox. The truck driver said he did not see the vehicle prior to pulling into the roadway.
