A Florida motorcycle deputy has been injured after he was involved in a multi-vehicle crash in Gibsonton, Florida, earlier today.
The incident happened around 1:30 p.m. on Gibsonton Drive near the Interstate 75 overpass. Deputy Tim Berg was reportedly stopped at a red light when he was struck from behind by what has been described as a white flatbed or utility truck. Berg was dragged about 150 feet. The flatbed truck then hit a car, a Ford pickup truck, and an 18 wheeler. The 18 wheeler then hit two other vehicles.
Berg, who remained conscious through the entire incident, was pinned beneath the truck. It took crews an hour to extract him. He has been flown to Tampa General Hospital, but the extent of his injuries is unknown.
Gibsonton Drive has been shut down in both directions.
The incident is still under investigation.
