Deputy Has Beef with Cow on Road

KSAL Staff - October 5, 2015 11:34 am

One deputy from the Saline County Sheriff’s Department had quite the surprise when he was responding to a call about a structure fire early Sunday morning.

At 3:30AM, Deputy Scott Trembley was driving on Brookville Road just south of State Street when a cow moo-ved onto the road. Deputy Trembley did not see it in time and struck the animal.

He did not sustain any injuries, but the cow died on impact. The damage to the vehicle is undetermined.

When the deputy arrived to the scene of the fire, he discovered people were having a bonfire, and burn and prevent citations were issued to those participating.

So let me get this right he hits a cow because he is not paying attention and hardly ever is out in the county because usually is near town with radar traps. Great he did not get hurt due to lack of training but why take it out on the people having a bon-fire on their property?

That would be because they did not have a burn permit. Since they did not have one, someone saw flames, called in a fire and quite a few rural firefighters got up at 3:30 am to go put out said fire.

Well Elizabeth I don’t see the difference from people illegally firing fireworks during 4th of July and the firefighters having to get out of bed to fight those. If these people get caught starting fires they get warnings. Further if they had patrol cars out in different area’s of the county a deputy would not have to drive a hundred miles an hour to get to something because he was at the city limits doing radar.

The lucky thing is the deputy did not get injured and I am sure next time he will be more aware of what can occur. I read on another site someone said the sheriff had enough time on his hands to fix the truck himself and save taxpayers money. Now would that not be a sight. LOL
