Midland earned national media attention and social media attention worldwide this week after a deputy with the Midland County Sheriff’s Office was in a collision with a train. The deputy was trying to respond to an emergency call of an infant that was having breathing issues. On Tuesday, two emergency vehicles, both responding to the emergency call about the infant were stopped by a slow-moving train.
That must’ve been incredibly frustrating, knowing that an infant was in distress on the other side. Our emergency responders in Midland are devoted to this community and we are so thankful for their dedication and care.
Unfortunately, once the slow-moving train passed, the deputy immediately tried to cross over the tracks to get to the infant, but another train was much too close in its approach. The whole thing seemed like unbelievably poor timing that one would never expect. The train and the deputy’s vehicle collided. The vehicle flipped.
The deputy was taken out of the vehicle through its window and then transported to a local hospital. The deputy suffered bruising throughout his body but survived the crash, miraculously. Thankfully, other responders made it to the infant in time and the baby was taken to the emergency room. Our thoughts go out to all those involved and the witnesses who must’ve been terrified and especially to the Midland deputy.
