Sumter deputy recovering after wreck

January 13, 2004

Americus-- A Sumter County deputy is recovering from a wreck with a suspected drunk driver.

30-year-old Deputy John Dew was on duty Saturday night when 29-year-old Samuel Shawn McAuley hit Dew's patrol car head-on on Highway 30.

Dew was seriously injured and is at a Columbus hospital. The sheriff says he won't be able to return to work for six months.  The Georgia State Patrol is waiting on results from a blood test to determine if McAuley was driving under the influence.
