A motorcycle deputy with the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office, identified as Nathaniel Kirk, was injured in a crash that took place on Thursday. Witnesses said that he hit a dead animal on the Beachline Expressway at the time of the incident.
Deputies and fire rescue personnel were called out to the scene around 2:15 p.m., where they found the injured deputy in the median. The road was closed in both directions so that the deputy could be helped. Kirk had his lights on and was trying to stop a vehicle but there was a dead animal in the road, which caused him to try to avoid it and was ejected from his motorcycle.
Kirk was alert and could talk to emergency responders when they arrived. He was airlifted and was confirmed in serious condition on Thursday afternoon.
