The Bonneville County Sheriff’s Office announced a deputy was killed while handling an incident on Monday morning. Deputy Sheriff Wyatt Maser, 23, responded to the area of Bone Road and 9th South around 5:20 am to investigate a crash.

Deputy Maser arrived and encountered a woman leaving the crash scene, holding a machete. Maser followed the woman on foot.

While Maser and another deputy attempted to take the woman into custody on the street, a responding deputy arrived on scene and struck Deputy Maser with his vehicle.

My heart breaks for both officer’s & their families both blood & blue. I can not imagine how the officer who accidentally hit him feels! I’m sure he is in complete utter shock & disbelief! This has got to be more tragic than the hero being hit by a bad guy. I pray the department holds the officer in their arms & are there for him all the way! This truly breaks my heart…
