The Sierra Vista Police Department is investigating a collision involving a Cochise County Sheriff’s Office deputy that occurred Monday evening on State Route 90 at mile marker 315, located between Sierra Vista and Huachuca City.
SVPD officers responded to the scene at about 8:02 p.m. They learned from a number of witnesses that a Cochise County Sheriff’s Office Chevy Tahoe patrol vehicle was traveling northbound on State Route 90 with emergency lights and sirens on when it veered out of its lane and struck a 2003 Toyota Corolla, which had pulled off to the right side of the highway as emergency vehicles approached. The Tahoe, which was being driven by Cochise County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Troy Haymore, reportedly rolled over before coming to a rest off of the highway.
Haymore was transported to Canyon Vista Medical Center where he was treated for minor injuries and released. The driver of the Corolla, 74-year-old Palominas resident Richard Titus, did not report any injuries.
The investigation into the cause of this collision is ongoing and no citations have been issued at this time.
