Wednesday evening Chatham County Sheriff’s office received a call from Bryan County that one of their deputies was involved in a fatal two car accident.
The deputy was traveling on U.S. 280 just north of exit 143 off of Interstate 16 in the patrol car when the deputy made a U-turn and was struck by another car.
The deputy was on duty, but in an unmarked vehicle.
A name has not yet been released, says Gena Bilbo, Chatham County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman.
Georgia State Patrol is investigating the accident.
