  • Deputy Darrell Perritt Maury County Sheriff's Office TN

    SPRING HILL, Tenn. - A Maury County sheriff's deputy was killed in a crash early Tuesday morning in Spring Hill while responding to help another deputy involved in a pursuit.

    The Tennessee Highway Patrol said Deputy Darrell Perritt was traveling north on Clara Mathis Road around 3 a.m. when he lost control, left the roadway and hit a tree on the driver's side. He was killed instantly.

    THP spokesman Sgt. Bill Miller said they were in contact with the district attorney and charges could be brought against the female driver involved in the pursuit.

    "If the individual was not fleeing, we would not have had this situation this morning," Sgt. Miller said.

    Maury County Sheriff Bucky Rowland told News 2 Perritt, 42, leaves behind a wife, a daughter and two sons. Perritt and his wife were married for 22 years.

    Sheriff Rowland said Perritt became a reserve deputy two years ago. He attended the training academy and graduated three months ago to become a full-time deputy. Sheriff Rowland went on to say the Perritt loved his job and had an infectious smile.

    "We're going to miss him, but I'll tell you this, his spirit will live on through this department," Sheriff Rowland said. He said the healing process has already started with local pastors and jail chaplains gathering with sheriff department staff to talk about the terrible crash.

    Sgt. Miller stated that the woman fleeing from police eventually crashed her vehicle and was airlifted to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville. She is suspected of driving under the influence.
    That's what they do, it's a trailer park.
