Sheriff Dean Howell of the George County Mississippi Sheriff Department sadly reports the death of Deputy John Robert Street.

Deputy Street, 24, died in a single vehicle crash while he was responding to a traffic accident call. It appears that Deputy Street’s patrol vehicle left the roadway as he was traveling on Highway 57 and struck a tree.

Deputy Street’s law enforcement career spanned a short four years. He served part time with the George County Sheriff Department and full time with the Lucedale Police Department.

Deputy Street is survived by his wife and two young children, ages four years and four months.

Deputy Sheriff John Street-gone, but never forgotten. EOW: Tuesday, December 16, 2014.
