motorcycle accident happened Saturday
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Following an on-duty motorcycle accident Saturday afternoon with one of our Traffic Units our agency has received a significant number of calls and inquiries about our Deputy’s condition and how our community can help.
As such, I just wanted to give everyone a quick update on Deputy Tygh Freeman’s condition which I am excited to say is very good considering the seriousness of the crash and the damage to his motor unit.
Fortunately, Tygh received minor injuries during the accident that occurred on U.S. 1 near Forrest Avenue in Cocoa while he and other members of our Motor Unit were conducting a funeral escort.
He was transported by Fire Rescue to Health First’s Viera Hospital where he was examined and later released with minor injuries and skin abrasions.
Tygh has been a Deputy Sheriff with our agency for approximately 13 years and has been assigned to our Traffic Enforcement Motor Unit since 2007. He is also a proud military veteran serving our country in the United States Air Force from 1993-2002, with deployments to Saudi Arabia during Operation Desert Shield.
Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Motor Operators are highly trained and valuable assets to our agency under the Special Operations of the Sheriff’s Office.
The unit is comprised of 10 members who are assigned to address traffic related issues throughout the county in an effort to keep the community safe and ultimately reduce the number of traffic fatalities on Brevard County Roadways. The unit is also responsible for conducting Special
Details such as parades, various types of traffic escorts, traffic control and special events.
We are extremely thankful that Deputy Freeman wasn’t seriously injured in the accident and we are so grateful for the thoughts, prayers and calls of concern from our citizens.
I would like to also thank the members of the Fire/Rescue Team who assisted Tygh following the accident and the entire team at Viera Hospital Emergency Care who made certain Tygh was well taken care of.
– Sheriff Wayne Ivey
