Deputy Sheldon Whiteman

Deputy Sheriff Sheldon Whiteman was killed in a crash while involved in a vehicle pursuit at approximately 3:00 am.

Officers with the Ludowici Police Department had initiated the pursuit when they attempted to stop a vehicle for a traffic violation. The vehicle fled onto Highway 57 toward McIntosh County with officers in pursuit. Deputy Whiteman had just joined the pursuit when his vehicle left the roadway and struck several trees near Tibet Road SE. He was transported to Liberty Regional Medical Center in Hinesville where he succumbed to his injuries.

The vehicle that was being pursued was later found abandoned in McIntosh County and the driver remains at large.

Deputy Whiteman had served with the Long County Sheriff's Office for four months and had previously served with the Chatham County Sheriff's Office for four years. He is survived by his wife and three children.
