Madison Death

The Madison County Sheriff's Office is mourning the death of an officer.

The jail correction officer's name is not being released until his family has been notified.

The city of Madison says the officer was in his personal vehicle at the time of the accident. Officials confirm that the incident happened Thursday morning around 7:00 on State Road 145 and Rocky Ford Road in Madison County.

A second vehicle was involved. There’s no word yet on charges. Madison deputies say the sheriff himself is driving to see the victim's family to notify them of the accident.

The sheriff plans to release further details later Thursday.
