In the early morning hours of September 23, 2021, Deputy Luke Gross responded to Route 3 in Trenton for the report of a vehicle off the road that had hit a pole. It was reported that the operator of the vehicle was possibly under the influence. Deputy Gross arrived and the suspect vehicle had fled the scene. While investigating the scene, Deputy Gross was struck by a pickup and suffered serious injuries. Despite efforts to save Deputy Gross, he did not survive his injuries.
Deputy Gross was a valuable and highly respected deputy at the Sheriff’s Office for eighteen years. Deputy Gross is survived by Lauren his wife of 15 years and a son Ryan and a daughter Alyssa.
Out of respect and recognition of Deputy Gross’s long service, today September 28, 2021 as Sheriff of Hancock County I am officially retiring the call sign Han9. No other deputy going forward will ever be assigned that call number. Someone eventually will fill Deputy Gross’s spot at the Sheriff’s Office but no one will replace him.
