LEON, Kan. (AP) - A Butler County sheriff’s deputy escaped serious injury when a semi-trailer truck hit his patrol car in south-central Kansas.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says the accident happened Monday morning near Leon on westbound U.S. 400.

The westbound truck hit the patrol car while the deputy was helping a stalled motorist.

The truck driver was taken to Wesley Medical Center with non-critical injuries. The deputy was treated for minor injuries at the scene.

Traffic on westbound U.S. 400 was reduced to one lane while the accident was investigated.
