We’ve learned that an off-duty Brunswick County Sheriff’s deputy wrecked her brand new 2010 Ford Mustang Wednesday night, reportedly doing 100 mph in a 60 mph speed zone.

Shallotte police say it happened on the US 17 Bypass near NC 130. Investigators say Samantha Lewis was heading south when she lost control of the car, ran off the road into a ditch and rolled some 420 feet. That’s almost a football field and a half!

She was taken to New Hanover Regional Medical Center. The Sheriff’s Office says she is recovering and should be fine. Police say the car was totaled.

The state can revoke your license for driving more than 15 mph over the speed limit if you’re going faster than 55 mph. You can lose your license for 60 Days for speeding and reckless driving. And it can suspend your license for speeding over 75 mph.

If there is an emergency situation that they are responding to, such as a domestic disturbance, they should use their lights and sirens. They would get there faster with them since people would know to get out of their way and the LEO wouldn’t be risking innocent poeple because they didn’t feel that the situation they were responding to warrented using the siren. There is a reason the cars have them….. Try telling people who have lost loved ones to wrecks caused by speeding officers without sirens that some situations don’t “require lights and sirens”.
Besides, being trained in defensive driving… Read more »
