POMPANO BEACH, Fla. -

A Broward Sheriff's deputy, who was critically injured after veering off I-95 and hitting a tree, has died from his injuries.

Deputy Daniel Rivera was pronounced dead at 10:20 p.m. Saturday at Broward Health North Hospital.

According to BSO deputies, Rivera's family is "grateful for the outpouring of support during this difficult time." The Broward Sheriff Office also asks "that you continue to pray for Rivera's family and his BSO family.”

On September 11, 2013, Rivera was headed to the Pompano Beach substation when he crashed his patrol car into a palm tree south of Copans Road.

“Our entire agency is feeling the loss of this young, brave deputy who was taken too soon from his family, friends and coworkers,” said Sheriff Scott Israel. “I am praying for Deputy Rivera’s family to find comfort and strength during this time.”

Deputy Rivera started with the Broward Sheriff's Office in 2003.

Anyone who witnessed the crash is asked to call the Broward Sheriff's Office Traffic Homicide unit at 654-321-4840.
