Mesa, AZ (October 7, 2019) – An officer and his vehicle were struck by a driver in a Mesa neighborhood on Monday morning.
Authorities created a large perimeter around the Mesa neighborhood to search for the man who hit the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office deputy and his vehicle. The perimeter was set up just off of Broadway Road and 96th Street up to Crimson Road.
