DURHAM, N.C. (AP) - Authorities are investigating a crash that sent a Durham County Sheriff’s deputy and another driver to the hospital.

Local media outlets report that the deputy was driving east on US-70 at around 9:45 p.m. Saturday when the driver of another car made a left turn onto the highway, crossing both lanes of traffic.

Authorities say the vehicles collided, and both drivers were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The highway was closed for a time so the scene could be cleared. The North Carolina State Highway Patrol is investigating.
