A head-on collision this morning sent a Mobile County Sheriff’s deputy to the hospital and claimed the life of a second man near Rangeline Road.
The Mobile Police Department has been investigating the accident and confirmed a silver Mustang operated by Dean Franklin Lisenba, 55, crossed from a southbound lane into the northbound — striking a Sheriff’s office vehicle at 5:40 a.m., Thursday.
Lisenba was pronounced dead on the scene and the deputy was transported to University of South Alabama Medical Center where he was treated and released.
Mobile police said the results of the crash were not due to a pursuit by the Sheriff’s Office, and the inured deputy’s name has not yet been released.
It’s also unknown at this time whether alcohol or drugs played a factor in the crash. However, records from the MCSO office show Lisenba has a criminal history that includes multiple DUI and public intoxication arrests.
