That person was a department of corrections officer.

A Hardee County Sheriff's Office deputy who had been helping at an evacuation shelter overnight was killed on her way home Sunday morning.

Officials said Bridges, a 13-year veteran of the agency.

"We're all very saddened", Lanier said.

Florida Highway Patrol spokesman Greg Bueno says troopers are investigating the crash and no further details were immediately available. Conditions at the time of the crash were windy and rainy, Lanier said.

Hardee County is an interior county in Florida southeast of Tampa.

Hardee Correctional Institution - near Wauchula, east of Bradenton - was not among the prisons the state evacuated in advance of Hurricane Irma, FDOC said.
