FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - A South Florida deputy is recovering from injuries after crashing his patrol car into a wall.

Broward Sheriff’s officials say the unidentified deputy was responding to a shooting in Lauderdale Lakes on Friday night when he lost control of the vehicle and struck a wall. A helicopter was already en route to the alleged shooting and was nearby to quickly transport the deputy to the hospital.

The deputy’s injuries are not life threatening.

Authorities say the shooting ended up being unfounded.
