A veteran Alameda County (CA) sheriff’s deputy died on Thursday afternoon after being struck by a jail transport bus at Dublin’s Santa Rita Jail one day prior, sheriff’s officials said.
Sheriff’s officials took to Twitter around 3:15 p.m. to express “great sadness” about Michael Foley’s death.
Foley, 60, was walking behind a bus when the driver backed up and hit him. Foley suffered traumatic brain injuries in the crash and died Thursday morning.
