Two Deputies Injured in Brandon

Two Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office deputies sustained serious injuries on Thursday morning while responding to a call for service. 

The HCSO Communications Center received a call at 7:44 a.m. from a woman stating that her son was in a mental health crisis at their home in Brandon.

At some point during the response, the two deputies were struck by a vehicle and sustained severe injuries.

Sheriff Chad Chronister is en route to the scene and will provide more details to the media when available.

Media is asked to stage at Blufield and Flaxwood.
