VICKSBURG, Miss. (AP) - A Warren County deputy who was injured in a car wreck while on duty has died.
Coroner Doug Huskey tells The Vicksburg Post that 38-year-old Deputy David Lambert died Tuesday at Promise Speciality Hospital in Vicksburg. Lambert had left an acute care hospital four days before his death. He was injured in the June 24 wreck off U.S. 61 North, and officials believe he was responding to a call.
Huskey says the cause of Lambert's death is unknown. An autopsy has been ordered.
Lambert had been in law enforcement since 1995 and joined the Warren County department in January.
