Deputy's SUV was seen swerving on the Lloyd

A Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Deputy has been taken to the hospital after becoming ill behind the wheel. WNIN’s John Gibson has the story:

Central Dispatch received calls about a sheriff’s vehicle swerving on the Lloyd Expressway at about 7:00 Monday morning.

At least one caller said the deputy driving the SUV appeared to be having a medical issue.

Officers on Central Dispatch indicated the deputy was diabetic and may have been having a blood-sugar issue.

The deputy was not heard on the radio and officers began looking for the deputy.

Central Dispatch was asked to “ping” the deputy’s cell phone.

Eventually, the deputy handed the phone to a citizen who said the officer was stopped in the 4700 block of Mesker Park Drive.

The deputy was taken from there to Deaconess Midtown Hospital.

Low blood sugar can cause confusion, dizziness, sweating, shaking, and a fast heart rate.
