Autopsy on Grant County deputy killed in crash

EPHRATA, Wash. - An autopsy Tuesday on the Grant County sheriff's deputy killed in a one-car crash may indicate whether a medical condition figured in Sunday's accident.
     
Undersheriff John Turley says the autopsy on Deputy John Bernard was being conducted for the county at the Forensics Institute at Samaritan Hospital in Moses Lake.
     
Bernard was not on his way to an emergency and he was wearing a seatbelt when his patrol car left a road nine miles south of Ephrata and rolled.
     
Turley says Bernard appeared to be in good health, but two years ago he underwent treatment for leukemia and was later hospitalized for vertigo and headaches from a blood disorder related to the chemotherapy.
     
A Washington State Patrol team is continuing to investigate the crash.

A Washington State Patrol major accident investigation team is trying to determine how a Grant County sheriff's deputy on routine patrol was killed in a one-car rollover
crash.

Sheriff Frank T. DeTrolio says 52-year-old John Bernard was on a routine patrol when his car left the roadway and rolled over at 7:20 p.m. Sunday night, nine miles south of Ephrata.
     
Undersheriff John Turley says the road was wet, but there was no snow or ice.
     
Bernard was wearing a seat belt, and was not on his way to an emergency, but had just cleared another call.
     
The 52-year-old Moses Lake man was a four-year veteran of the sheriff's office.

Bernard leaves a wife and two sons. One, Brandon Bernard, is also a Grant County sheriff's deputy.

DeTrolio praised the fallen deputy and said he was "a tireless public servant."
