Off-duty Gregg Co deputy critically injured
An off-duty Gregg County sheriff's deputy injured in a car-motorcycle accident Sunday is in critical condition at Good Shepherd Medical Center.
Deputy Steve Duszik was returning from a trip to Austin when another vehicle struck him head-on about 11:30 a.m. causing life-threatening injuries, Texas Department of Public Safety Trooper Carl Davis said.
According to Davis, the 57-year-old deputy was northbound on Texas 31, just inside the Gregg County line, when a southbound vehicle driven by Lindsey Avery, 23, of Jefferson, made a left turn in front of the motorcycle. The vehicles collided head-on in the deputy's lane.
