PARKLAND, Wash. – The Pierce County sheriff’s office identified the deputy hurt in a head-on collision Tuesday as a school resources officer for Bethel school district named David Rose.

Detective Ed Troyer said Rose suffered multiple broken bones and lacerations, as well as a concussion.

“We are hopeful that he will make a full recovery and are incredibly thankful considering the severity of the collision and the injuries he suffered as a result,” Troyer said in an email. “Please join us in continuing to keep him and his family in your thoughts and prayers.”
