Funeral arrangements made for deputy killed in crash
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — Funeral arrangements have been made for a Florida deputy who died in an on-duty traffic crash.
A Broward Sheriff’s Office news release says a viewing is scheduled for Deputy Benjamin Nimtz on Wednesday evening at Fred Hunter’s in Hollywood, and a service will follow the next morning at Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale.
Authorities say Nimtz had his lights and siren activated as he headed to a domestic violence call in Deerfield Beach last weekend. The patrol SUV collided with a pickup truck in an intersection. The other driver’s injuries weren’t life-threatening.
Sheriff’s officials say Nimtz had been with the department since March 2018.
