 The collision caused his car to leave the roadway, landing in some other nearby wrecked cars, causing it to be not easily be seen.  After Deputy Robinson failed to respond to radio calls, other deputies were sent to look for him.  The accident scene was found several hours later.

Deputy Robinson had served with the Sheriff's Department for only a few months.  He was survived by his wife.
