GA Deputy dies in crash

SPRINGFIELD, GA - A dedicated, reliable lawman was to be buried Wednesday, the only Effingham County deputy killed in the line of duty in recent years.

Dennis Wright Sr., 52, was killed about 8 p.m. Friday when his marked patrol car collided with a minivan at the intersection of Jimmy DeLoach Parkway and Benton Boulevard in Pooler.

Deputy Derrick Seckinger, a traffic officer who usually worked the same shifts with Wright, was a passenger in the cruiser. He remained in fair condition at a Savannah hospital Monday, Effingham Capt. Mike Bohannon said.
