JAMESTOWN, N.C. --

A Guilford County sheriff's deputy suffered a broken clavicle and a mild concussion when his patrol car flipped several times as he was responding to a call early Thursday morning, Guilford County deputies said.

The crash happened about 1:30 a.m. on Harvey Road, according to the Highway Patrol, as Deputy John Bush was driving to a breaking and entering call.

Officers said Bush entered a sharp curve, hit an embankment and flipped the car several times.

He was taken to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, where he is listed in stable condition.

Sheriff BJ Barnes said Bush was trying to get to the call as quickly as possible, but speed was not a factor in the crash. Troopers said fog may have been a factor.

Bush has been employed at the Sheriff's Department since 2003, Barnes said.
