Kent County Sheriff Deputy Ron (Skip) Kimbrough

Kent County Sheriff Deputy Ron (Skip) Kimbrough

Kent County Sheriff Deputy Ron (Skip) Kimbrough was stuck in the southbound traffic backup on US131, just south of West River Drive on Tuesday, June 21, about 8:25 a.m., when another driver pulled up next to him and told him about a serious car crash 10-15 car lengths behind him. Deputy Kimbrough then turned his patrol car around and went in search of the crash.

He soon located the scene. A vehicle had struck the back of a small pickup truck , and the truck was on fire. The female driver was pinned in and unconscious. The other driver was able to exit her vehicle on her own and was treated for minor injuries at the scene.

Three other motorists exited their vehicles and assisted the deputy by smashing the driver’s door window out. They pulled the driver out through the driver’s door window and laid her on the pavement away from the car.

Both vehicles were quickly engulfed in flames until the Plainfield Fire Department extinguished the fire.
