MEDFORD, Ore. — Oregon State Police are investigating a car crash that involved a Jackson County Sheriff’s Office deputy Wednesday night.
The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office says the incident involved two separate car crashes on Table Rock Road. The first happened around 7:30 P.M. The agency says a driver was pulling out onto the main roadway when they pulled in front of another car. The two collided.
While deputies were responding to that crash, a drunk driver crashed into a deputy’s car 15 minutes later.
The officer and the driver were both taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
The driver was arrested and charged with DUII.
The Sheriff’s Office says OSP is investigating the crash because it involves one of their own.
