Sheriff Ana Franklin tells WHNT News 19 the injured deputy is Tyler Watson.  He was taken to Huntsville Hospital, and was released Thursday morning.

Franklin described what happened.

"It was right during the time the weather was getting really bad, he said he hydroplaned, the car lost control, and he flipped several times," said Sheriff Franklin. "It looks like he may have hit a tree, so he had to be removed from the vehicle."
