Pink marks on McLaughlin Road show the spot where the accident took place.

One person died in an officer-involved accident in Munford Thursday night.

The Tipton County Sheriff’s Office confirmed Saturday that a deputy was traveling on McLaughlin Road and struck a person riding a bicycle.

Sheriff Shannon Beasley called the accident unfortunate and requested prayers for both the victim and the deputy involved.


Neither the deputy nor the victim has been identified by the TCSO.

McLaughlin Road was closed from Gretna Green Road to Doctors Drive while the matter was investigated overnight Thursday. The accident took place in front of the new Wooten Oaks subdivision, near the area where the road widens and sidewalks are available for use.
