Carteret County Deputy Flips Patrol Car Responding To Call

For the second time this week a deputy in Eastern Carolina has been involved in a single car accident.

The latest happened Tuesday night in Carteret County.

The sheriff's department said two deputies were responding to a domestic dispute on Highway 101. Both cars were going around a sharp curve near Core Creek, when the patrol car belonging to Deputy David Perry lost control on a curve and flipped completely over in a ditch.

Perry was not injured and no other vehicles were involved.

An Onslow County deputy also lost control of his vehicle Sunday night in Sneads Ferry responding to a call, he also was not injured

    sure I'll bite on your comment, if i was waiting on this officer i would surely be in trouble since he couldn't control his car flipping it and then my tax dollars would be purchasing a new one. Learn your limits and respect them or it'll come back to bite you in the end. Oh and i will have a good day thank you

    Anonymous : I bet if you were getting the c**p beat out of you, you would want them to " race around them curves " to save your back side. Good Day.

    Obviously these officers don't know how to properly drive their cars, suspend their driving privileges since any other citizen would receive a ticket. Also these poorly handeling vehicles shouldn't be racing around curves
