A Grant County Sheriff's Department deputy has died.

Around 7:20 p.m. deputy John Bernard of Moses Lake rolled his car while on a routine patrol. He was declared dead at the scene.

Bernard was 52-years-old. He was a four year veteran of the Grant County Sheriff's Office and had previously served as a Grant County Corrections Officer from 1997 to 2002.

He joined the City of Ephrata Police Department as a patrol officer in 2002 and served until 2006 when he became a Sheriff's Deputy.

He is survived by two sons, one of which is also a Grant County Sheriff's Deputy.
