Deputy injured in crash recovering

Patrol car slid off road into trees

POSTED: March 25, 2013 5:32 p.m.

The Forsyth County Sheriff’s deputy who was injured Saturday morning when his patrol car hydroplaned on Hwy. 369 is recuperating at home, authorities said.

According to the sheriff’s office, Deputy Michael Cartledge was released Sunday afternoon from North Fulton Hospital, where he was treated for what were described as non-life-threatening injuries.

The single-vehicle wreck occurred about 7:30 a.m. Saturday near Julius Bridge Road in Cherokee County.

The sheriff’s office said Cartledge, a two-year veteran of the agency, was traveling east in a 2008 Dodge Charger when the vehicle apparently hydroplaned and struck several trees.

Cartledge, who was wearing his seat belt, was taken by Cherokee County emergency personnel to the hospital in Roswell, according to the sheriff’s office.

The Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office is handling the investigation.

Forsyth authorities said they were awaiting a report from Cherokee, but that the rainy and wet conditions that morning were contributing factors in the crash.
