“We have reviewed the in-car camera system and it appears the deputy had reached a speed of 92 M.P.H. at one point prior to the crash,” Cox said in a news release.
“We will further review the accident report in addition to our office policies as we review all internal accidents,” Cox said.
“Fortunately this was a one-car crash and no one was seriously injured. Deputy Graham’s pride and body are probably rather sore today but we a re glad he is OK.”
