An early-morning crash on Interstate 75 injured a Monroe County sheriff’s deputy and a longtime Telegraph carrier Sunday.

Deputy Timothy Campfield was helping the Forsyth Police Department handle an accident, directing traffic near mile marker 185 southbound, when a vehicle struck him and his patrol car, according to a news release from Allison Selman-Willis, public information officer for the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office.

Campfield was taken to the Medical Center of Central Georgia with non-life-threatening injuries; he had been released by noon Sunday, according to the Medical Center.

George Drakopoulos, circulation operations manager for The Telegraph, identified the other driver as Sandra Mobley, who delivers the newspaper in Monroe County. Mobley was seriously injured and has been transferred to the Medical Center, Drakopoulos said.
