WINDSOR, N.C. (WITN) - Bertie County Sheriff’s Deputy Colter Lipscomb returned home Tuesday after three weeks in the hospital recovering from critical injuries suffered when his vehicle hydroplaned in early January.

Lipscomb’s friend, Lauren Belch, captured footage of the moment Lipscomb was escorted by more than ten law enforcement vehicles from Vidant Medical Center in Greenville back to Windsor. Community members held balloons and one man held a sign that read “Windsor Loves You!”
