Our Thoughts and Prayers
February 2, 2019 - C.E.M.P. joins the many who are mourning the loss of Ventura County Search & Rescue Deputy Jeff Dye. Dye was traveling with the group on their way to a training session at Mount Pinos, above Frazier Park in Kern County, said sheriff’s Sgt. Eric Buschow. While the group was northbound along I-5, they encountered a crash on the freeway in the median and stopped to help, Buschow said. As they were assisting with the crash, “a vehicle plowed into them,” Buschow said. “One of our SAR team members was killed and several were injured.” Dye was part of the Fillmore search-and-rescue group, Buschow said. The incident occurred shortly after 7:30 a.m. near Vista Del Lago Road, near Pyramid Lake, he said. Three other team members were injured in the crash, he said. Two of the injured team members remained in critical condition at Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital as of Saturday afternoon. The third team member was discharged from the hospital with minor injuries, authorities said.
