A Columbia County sheriff’s deputy was seriously injured Sunday after she wrecked a motorcycle during training.
Tiffanie Marie Smithwick, 23, was training on her motorcycle at about 10:45 a.m. in a back parking lot of the Evans Government Complex in Evans, according to sheriff’s Capt. Steve Morris.
While making a left turn, Smithwick was unable to avoid hitting a concrete light pole base, according to a sheriff’s office accident report.
Smithwick was thrown off the motorcycle and hit the light pole with her head and suffered several injuries.
