Sheriff ’s Dispatcher Suffers Serious Injuries

On Friday, November 11, at 3:33 p.m., Jill Enloe was returning home from work at the Lee County Sheriff’s Department, where she is employed as a dispatcher. She was traveling northbound on Loop 123 at Cherry Drive in Lexington on a motorcycle, while Lexington High School student, Nathan Kaiser, was traveling southbound on the Loop in a 1995 Chevrolet pickup truck. According to the Lee County Sheriff’s Office, Kaiser made a left hand turn onto Cherry Drive from the Loop and struck Enloe, pinning her under the truck.

Lexington EMS, Volunteer Fire Department, and Sheriff’s Deputy Michael York, along with Captain Yarbrough and Officer Nurse with the Lexington Police Department, responded to the scene.

Lexington VFD brought equipment to lift the truck off of her, but when they arrived, several people were already working with EMS and lifting the truck, pulling her from underneath.

Enloe suffered serious injuries in the accident and was taken by Starflight to Brackenridge Hospital in Austin. Enloe never lost consciousness, but was treated and placed into intensive care.

It was reported on Monday, November 14, that she had been taken out of intensive care, but was still recuperating at Brackenridge. We wish her a speedy recovery.
