Both men were extricated from the vehicle. Deputy Elium was flown to University Medical Center where he died shortly after midnight. The chaplain was transported to a separate hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Deputy Elium had served with the Tulare County Sheriff's Office for 5 years. He is survived by his son and two daughters.
