On January 22, 2014 around 4:52 pm a 911 call was received by the Warren County Sheriff’s Office for a cardiac arrest at the Bentonville low water bridge. A 53 year old male had been pulled from the water by family and construction workers that were in the area. The male was identified as Jeffery Vaught of Front Royal. Warren County Fire & Rescue along with the Warren County Sheriff’s Office responded to the scene. It was determined Vaught was filling buckets of water to be used on his farm at the time of the incident.
Mr. Vaught was transported to Warren Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead. The exact cause of death will be determined by the state medical examiner’s office. The death is being handled as an accident.
The Warren County Sheriff’s Office sends our deepest sympathy to the family of Mr. Vaught.
