ABINGDON, Md.- A sheriff's deputy responding to an attempted suicide call was killed when his cruiser plunged 60 yards down an embankment, coming to rest in a creek bed, authorities said.

Deputy First Class William Beebe, 28, was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Police have not determined what caused Monday night's accident near Abingdon.

Beebe joined the department in 2004, the Harford County sheriff's office said.
