JEFFERSON COUNTY, AL - A Jefferson County deputy who was injured in an ATV accident last week has died.

According to the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office, Deputy Brad Perry, 42, passed away this morning. He had been unconscious in the hospital since the accident.

Perry had worked with the Sheriff's Office since 2001, when he started in the Corrections Division. He was transferred to the Patrol Division in the Bessemer Cutoff area in February of 2005. This April, he was assigned as a youth services detective, where he focused on juvenile crime.

"His loss will be profoundly felt by everyone at the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office. Our hearts and prayers are with his family during this very difficult and sad time," a statement from the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office read.  "The Sheriff's Office would like to thank everyone for the thousands of prayers and well wishes for our deputy as he struggled to overcome his injuries. We ask for continued prayers of healing and comfort for friends and family left behind and for his sheriff's office family as well."
