TAMPA – A Hillsborough deputy was injured Sunday (July 1) when he was involved in a traffic crash on MacDill Avenue, the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said.

Deputy Eric King, 41, suffered a cut to the top of his head and was taken to Tampa General Hospital. The other driver, Jessie Ray Williams, 33, complained of a sore knee but remained at the scene.

The crash happened about 4:55 p.m. at the intersection of MacDill Avenue and Columbus Drive W.

King was driving north on MacDill  in a marked Dodge Charger belonging to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office. As King neared the intersection of Columbus Drive W, deputies said Williams, who was driving a 2018 Lexus RX350,  turned in front of him heading east on Columbus.

King braked, but was not able to stop in time. Deputies said King’s Dodge hit the passenger side of the Lexus, causing it to flip onto its roof. King’s Dodge was disabled within the intersection with air bag deployment.

Tampa police and Tampa Fire Rescue responded and secured the intersection.
