COLUMBIA, Tenn. (AP) - Authorities say a Tennessee sheriff’s deputy has died from injuries suffered in a single-car crash.

The Maury County Sheriff’s Department said on its Facebook page that Deputy Jimmy Tennyson died Saturday.

Officials said Tennyson was involved in a crash Friday in his patrol car in Columbia, located about 40 miles south of Nashville.

Police said Tennyson negotiated a right-hand curve, crossed the center line and over-corrected. He went down an embankment and hit some trees. He was taken to a hospital with critical injuries.

The sheriff’s department said its “friend and brother” died with family by his side.

Tennyson was a school resource officer.
