An off-duty Jefferson County sheriff's deputy is in critical condition after a Tuesday night ATV accident.
Chief Deputy Randy Christian tells FOX6 that Deputy Brad Perry and another deputy were involved in the accident.
The off-duty deputies were riding on a mine road off of Mud Creek Road in the western part of the county when the ATV hit a hole or ditch, then flipped.
Christian says Perry, the driver, suffered a serious head injury but the female deputy wasn't injured. Perry is a youth services investigator in the Bessemer cutoff.
He was unconscious, but breathing, when taken to UAB Hospital, according to Christian.
Christian asked for prayers for the injured deputy.
