Deputy Sheriff Roy Sutton was killed in a single-car automobile accident on Dugan Hollow Road near Madison.

While responding to a domestic disturbance call involving weapons at about 10:35 pm, Deputy Sutton met an oncoming vehicle traveling westbound on a hilly, winding section of the road when his squad car ran off the right side of the road and down a very steep embankment. Deputy Sutton's squad became airborne and struck a tree on the driver's side of the car. He was wearing his seat belt, but he suffered severe head trauma and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Deputy Sutton had served with the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department for approximately 1½ years. He was survived by his wife, brother, three sisters and mother.

Thank you brother, for trying to get there, so your fellow officers didn't have to face armed people alone.
