Deputy Recovers from Rollover Crash

CARROLL COUNTY – A Carroll County Sheriff’s Deputy is recovering from serious injuries following a rollover crash this week.

Grudek says he has contacted the State Highway Department to look at that intersection as it proves to be treacherous to drivers, especially at night.
