I heard about this tragedy just days after the accident happened. I've been praying for Deputy Harper and his family ever since. He was struck head-on, while on duty that April morning. He was life-flighted to a Louisville hospital where he went through multiple surgeries. I can't even imagine what his wife Leeah, children Henry & Owen, his friends, and family have been going through. They also have a little girl named Madilyn that is due in September. I talked with his father Ron Harper Sr. today and I was so excited to hear that his son is currently recovering in a rehab facility.

If you're not familiar with the accident involving Deputy Harper, the Spencer County Sheriff's Office put out an announcement on April 28th, 2022. "Shortly after 5:00 AM CST, a Honda SUV was traveling eastbound on SR 66 near Old Lamar Highway in Spencer County. For unknown reasons the Honda drove off of the roadway, overcorrected, and traveled left of center into the path of a Spencer County Deputy driving westbound. The vehicles collided in the westbound lane. The driver of the Honda was pronounced deceased at the scene. The deputy was transported to Owensboro Hospital for treatment and then flown to a Louisville Hospital for further treatment. The deputy’s injuries are not believed to be life-threatening."
