Cause: Automobile accident
Deputy Sheriff Allen Sharra was killed in an automobile accident when his patrol car ran off a roadway and into a ditch.
An Explorer who was on a ride along at the time was able to radio for help, but Deputy Sharra was pronounced dead at the scene.
He was responding to assist another officer who had located a stolen car in a cotton field. The farm road that Deputy Sharra was driving down made a sudden ninety-degree turn without any warning signs. The cruiser left the roadway and struck an embankment. The Explorer was injured in the accident and transported to a local hospital in stable condition.
Deputy Sharra had served in law enforcement for nine years. He is survived by his wife and stepson.
