QUINCY, Wash. - A Grant County Sheriff's deputy has been killed in a one-vehicle car crash.
Sheriff Frank T. DeTrolio says the 52-year-old officer was on a routine patrol when his car left the roadway and rolled over at 7:20 p.m. Sunday night.
Deputy John Bernard of Moses Lake was found dead at the scene. He was a four-year veteran of the department who had earlier served as a county corrections officer and a Ephrata policeman.
The Washington State Patrol is conducting an investigation into the cause of the crash. It occurred Road No. 5 NW, about nine miles south of Ephrata and southeast of Quincy.
DeTrolio says Bernard was married with two sons, one of whom is also a Grant County sheriff's deputy.
He praised the fallen deputy and said he was "a tireless public servant."
