A Monticello police officer went for a very scary ride this morning. According to The Monticello Express Facebook page, the officer was responding to a call early this morning when he hit a deer. The officer's vehicle then rolled multiple times, before finally coming to rest in the ditch near Welter Storage on Business Highway 151.
