A Missouri sheriff’s deputy has died after his patrol car was washed off of a road in Greene County.

According to the Greene County Sheriff’s Office, Deputy Aaron Roberts was clearing a call he responded to in the 9500 block of Farm Road 2 when moments later he radioed to authorities that his car was washed off of the road.

Authorities lost radio traffic with him and launched an immediate search for Roberts. 

The Greene County Sheriff’s Office said officers from around the area along with the Springfield Fire/Water rescue teams and drones assisted in the search for Roberts.
