LANCASTER – A sheriff’s deputy and a civilian motorist were taken to hospitals with complaints of pain Sunday afternoon after a collision in a Lancaster intersection, a lieutenant said.
The deputy was just arriving at a command post Code 3 with red light and siren at about 2 p.m. when he collided with an early 2000s Nissan Maxima in the intersection of 10th Street West and Avenue K, said Lt. Derrick Alfred of the Lancaster Sheriff’s Station.
The deputy and the motorist, both men, were taken to hospitals for evaluation of complaints of pain and the deputy was treated and released, Alfred said. He did not know if or when the other man was released.
The intersection was closed for about four hours for the accident investigation, he said.
The command post was set up near the intersection while deputies worked to get a man allegedly involved in a domestic dispute to come out of his house, Alfred said. The barricaded situation occurred at a residence on Gadsden Avenue, according to sheriff’s officials.
The suspect was complying just as the crash occurred. He was arrested, but no further details were immediately available.
