HILLSBORO, Ore. (AP) - A driver crashed into the back of a Washington County Sheriff’s patrol vehicle while the deputy was responding to a separate snow-related crash south of Hillsboro, Oregon.

KATU-TV reports there were no reports of serious injuries from the collisions.

Emergency crews were initially called out just after 9 a.m. Sunday on reports of a crash on SW Bald Peak Road at the SW Laurel Road intersection.

Officials say a driver went off the snow-covered road and into a ditch.

As deputies, firefighters, and paramedics were responding to that crash, a second driver slid on the slick road and crashed into the back of a sheriff’s office vehicles.

The driver told KATU he tried to stop, but he couldn’t due to the snow.
