Sheriff's deputy's car flips

Posted:
BOONE (KWWL) -

A Boone County sheriff's deputy's cruiser flipped during a high-speed chase.

Chief Deputy Gregg Elsberry says Deputy Andrew Godzicki was trying to catch up to a car that was speeding east on U.S. Highway 30 toward Boone about 7:30 Tuesday morning.  Elsberry says when Godzicki braked hard to avoid slower traffic, he lost control of his cruiser. It went into a ditch, flipped several times and landed in the median. 

Elsberry describes Godzicki as "very, very sore," and says the deputy is recovering at home after being checked at a hospital.  As for the car and driver being chased, no arrest has been reported.
