St. Lucie County, FL – A woman involved in a rollover crash plunged a knife into a St. Lucie County sheriff’s deputy’s neck after he stopped to help her on Wednesday night, according to police.
Despite the gushing wound to his carotid artery, St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office (SLCSO) Deputy Cody Colangelo, 22, still chased after his attacker on foot, SLCSO Chief Deputy Brian Hester told reporters during a press conference on Thursday, according to WFLX.
Surgeons removed the damaged portion of his carotid artery and replaced it using a section of artery taken from his leg, WFLX reported.
Deputy Colangelo was listed in stable condition on Thursday morning and is expected to make a full recovery.
