COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A central Ohio sheriff says a deputy was hurt when a delivery truck driver lost control on a Columbus-area highway and struck a cruiser at a crash scene, pushing that vehicle into a tow truck.

The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office says the deputy was in the cruiser when the delivery truck hit a barrier between Interstate 71 and some ramps and then struck the cruiser early Wednesday.

Emergency responders had to free the deputy from his vehicle after the crash. The office says the deputy’s injuries weren’t serious, and he was released from a hospital within hours.

The sheriff’s office says drugs and alcohol don’t appear to be factors in the collision, which remains under investigation. It wasn’t immediately clear whether the driver would face any charges.
