Houston County deputy critically injured in motorcycle accident
A Houston County deputy sheriff was critically injured Wednesday when the motorcycle he was riding collided with a pickup truck. The accident occurred on Ross Clark Circle just west of Flying J Travel Plaza.
Deputy Sean Brodmerkel was riding his bike northbound along the busy roadway when a vehicle pulled into his path, according to initial investigative reports.
Police Lt. Scott Long said Brodmerkel was taken to the Southeast Alabama Medical Center for treatment. A relative told WTVY he was placed in intensive care with head injuries.
The police CRASH team---a squad of accident reconstruction experts---was sent to the scene to investigate. Long termed it routine due to the severity of the injuries.
Brodmerkel is a patrol deputy with the sheriff’s office.
