WINTER GARDEN, Fla. – An Orange County sheriff's deputy has been ticketed after troopers say he caused a four-car pileup on State Road 408 Tuesday morning.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, deputy Ryan Flynn, 32, of Orlando was driving his marked patrol vehicle eastbound on 408 near Good Homes Road around 7:30 a.m. when his car struck the rear of another car. The second car then struck the back of a third car and pushed the third car into a fourth car.
