PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) - A Florida Panhandle deputy and another man were injured when authorities say the other man purposefully caused a head-on collision.

The Florida Highway Patrol reports that 22-year-old Richard A. Holsendorff was traveling on Scenic Highway near Pensacola Monday afternoon when he crossed into oncoming traffic. The front right portion of Holsendorff’s car hit the front right portion of Deputy Terry Hammock’s patrol car.
