Wake deputy who survived shooting injured again
Posted February 5, 2012
Raleigh, N.C. — A Wake County sheriff's deputy who was injured last fall in the line of duty was in the hospital again after being hit by a car Saturday night.
Deputy Jeff Martin wasn't seriously injured in the wreck, which happened during a traffic stop in Knightdale, according to Phyllis Stephens, a spokeswoman for the Wake County Sheriff's Office.
Martin was standing next to a vehicle he had stopped when a passing van's mirror clipped him, authorities said. He was treated at a nearby hospital for minor injuries and was released.
Deputies charged the driver of the van, Mahram Mohammad, 35, of 1700 Vineyard Drive in Wilson, with failure to move over to the left lane and failure to stop at the scene of the crash.
On Nov. 17, Martin, 26 at the time, was wearing a bulletproof vest that saved his life when he was shot during a domestic dispute call near Wendell.
