TITUSVILLE, Fla. — A Brevard County deputy was killed early Saturday during a crash involving a semitruck, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
Troopers said the crash occurred on I-95 southbound near mile marker 217 in Titusville, just north of State Road 50, at around 5:10 a.m.
Field Training Officer Kevin Stanton was driving his marked patrol car when a semitruck hit and killed the deputy, Sheriff Wayne Ivey said.
Troopers said a tire blew out on the semitruck, causing the driver to lose control and crash into the patrol car.
The crash closed all southbound lanes of I-95 for several hours.
Stanton had been with the Sheriff's Office for more than 10 years, Ivey said.
