An off-duty Rockland County, NY, sheriff’s deputy suffered a fatal gunshot wound while driving in his car with his wife Tuesday afternoon, authorities said.
State Police said 42-year-old Frank Farina, of Stony Point, was pronounced dead at Orange Regional Medical Center on Tuesday after officers responding to a single-car crash on state Route 6 in Woodbury found him with a single gunshot wound to his head, reports WNBC.
His wife was also in the car, which crossed the double yellow line, left the road, and hit a rock embankment. She was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
