Fla. deputy dies in car crash

Officer Down: Deputy Sheriff Robin Tanner

Associated Press

MARATHON, Fla.  Monroe County authorities say a sheriff's deputy responding to a call died when she apparently lost control of her vehicle and crashed into a building.

Deputy Robin Tanner was en route to a woman who wasn't breathing when she crashed into the Marathon Cleaners building about 7 a.m. Thursday. No one inside the building was injured.

Lt. David Folsom of the Florida Highway Patrol says Tanner had her lights and siren on at the time of the crash. He said that the road was wet and that Tanner lost control somehow.

Folsom says it's not clear what caused Tanner to lose control.
