  • A Livingston County sheriff’s deputy responding to an emergency call in the northwest part of the county had a one-vehicle accident Thursday evening on Missouri Route 190.
    Sheriff Steve Cox reported that Deputy Brady Graham was on Highway 190, west of the Thompson River bridge and lost control of the patrol car, causing it to travel off the roadway. The vehicle received extensive damage. Graham did not seek immediate medical attention.
    The sheriff’s department has reviewed the in-car camera system and it appears the deputy had reached a speed of 92 mph at one point, prior to the crash. The accident is being investigated by the Missouri State Highway Patrol.
    “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.”
    The patrol car was a 2005 Ford Crown Victoria with more than 140,000 miles and had recently had the air bag system worked on; however, the air bags did not deploy on this incident.
