SALEM, Ore. (AP) - Authorities say a Marion County sheriff’s deputy and a cadet suffered minor injuries when their sport-utility vehicle crashed on Interstate 5.

Oregon State Police troopers are investigating. Investigators say that about 8:40 a.m. Sunday the deputy lost control of the vehicle on wet pavement as they were on their way to help other officers who had located an assault suspect in a field north of Salem.

The deputy was driving northbound, but the SUV went across the center median into the southbound lanes and struck a concrete roadside wall and sign before coming to rest along the shoulder.

The deputy and cadet were taken to Salem Hospital for treatment.
