VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) - Authorities said a Clark County Sheriff’s deputy was struck by a driver who was attempting to get onto Interstate 5 going the wrong way.

The sheriff’s office said the deputy was northbound on the interstate, exiting at the Battle Ground off ramp, early Sunday when he spotted the driver. The office said the deputy activated his emergency lights and positioned his car to try to stop the driver but the driver collided with the deputy’s vehicle.

The office, in a statement, said the driver was not hurt, and the deputy was taken to a local hospital for treatment and released.

Washington State Patrol is investigating the case.
