On August 31, 2018 Deputy Scott Prouty of the Indian River County Sheriffs Department (Florida) was involved in a traffic accident in Vero Beach, FL. A woman driving a sedan ran a red light and t-boned Deputy Prouty. The extent of his injuries were severe. He sustained spondylolisthesis in his lumbar region, intervertebral disc disorder with radiculopathy and cervicalgia to his spine. Also a torn rotator cuff to his shoulder.

Deputy Prouty is a 15 year veteran of the IRCSD. He was off-duty and on his way to pick up his son when this accident happened. Due to him being off-duty Deputy Prouty was informed he had 15 weeks to recover from this accident or be terminated. Well recovering from multiple back surgeries is going to take several months at least so the Department notified Deputy Prouty that his last day of employment will be December 24, 2018. They will also lose their insurance on this day. This has been devastating for Scott, his wife and his 3 sons.

I am trying to raise money for my son because his family will be out of their main source of income and all the insurance that comes with it. There will be a law suit to recover lost earnings of course but that could take a year or more. In the meantime, they will need a little help. Anything you can give would be much appreciated. Times are rough and the recovery process will be even rougher. Thank you for your time and donation.

A loving mother,

Crystal Prouty
