OCSO DEPUTY RECOVERING FROM CAR ACCIDENT
Okaloosa County Sheriff Ed Spooner says the agency is grateful to employees and community members who have been showing support for a deputy seriously injured in a car accident Tuesday evening.
Sheriff Spooner says 60-year old Randall Joiner, whose son is also a deputy with the OCSO, is showing signs of improvement, but still being monitored closely while undergoing treatment at Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola.
Deputy Joiner was involved in a three car accident around 5 p.m. Tuesday at Auburn Road and Old Hickory Road in the north end of the county. Another driver was cited for violation of right-of-way.
Deputy Joiner was pinned inside his vehicle and suffered multiple broken bones as well as internal injuries.
