Troup Co. deputy back to work after being injured in collision

TROUP COUNTY, GA (WTVM) - After a serious vehicle accident in June, a Troup County Sheriff's deputy is back to work.

Deputy Stephanie Masuoka was working the scene of an accident on Interstate 185 in LaGrange when a tractor-trailer came barreling towards her. The tractor-trailer hit the wrecked pickup truck that she was attending. The collision caused the pickup to hit Masuoka, sending her over a guardrail.

The Troup County Sheriff's Office posted to its Facebook page that Masuoka has now returned to work.

"It has been a long road and she still has a ways to go but it is certainly a great way to start 2018. Welcome back Stephanie," the department posted.
