Collier County, FL (October 8, 2018) - A Collier County Sheriff's Deputy was hurt following a two-car crash on Sunday, October 7th. The crash occurred just before 11:30 pm on County Road 886 near 44th Street NW.
Authorities say that 61-year-old Robert Demarsico of Naples was traveling eastbound on CR 886 when he came to a flashing red light. At the same time, Collier Sheriff's Deputy Ryan Diaz was traveling westbound as he approached a flashing yellow light. Demarsico turned left in front of Diaz, causing a collision between the two vehicles.
Diaz sustained non-life-threatening injuries in the collision. Demarsico received a citation for failure to stop at a flashing red light. Police say that Diaz was responding to a call when the crash occurred and had his lights and siren activated at the time.
A reportable crash occurs approximately every 92 seconds in Florida. Many crashes are caused by drivers who fail to follow traffic laws. In this case, it appears as though the failure to properly yield at a red light caused the crash between Robert Demarsico and Ryan Diaz. Fortunately, it appears as though everyone involved will be ok.
