A Collier County sheriff’s deputy broke his ankle early Monday when he and another deputy crashed their Segways.

Cpl. Kevin Alexander and Cpl. Justin Dill were patrolling on Hunter Boulevard around 12:30 a.m., Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Natalie Felber said. When the two deputies moved to let a vehicle pass, their tires locked together and they crashed.

Dill suffered a broken ankle in the crash.

At this time no discipline is planned for either deputy, Felber said.

“Both deputies have been trained to operate the Segway,” she said. “We don’t have any information that leads us us to believe that they were operating the Segways irresponsibly.”
