Two deputies with the Darke County (OH) Sheriff’s Office were injured when a pickup truck collided head on with their patrol vehicle on Thursday afternoon.

According to WDTN-TV, the deputies were responding to a call of a possibly impaired driver in a white pickup truck that had swiped several vehicles before swerving off the road and into a ditch.

The driver reportedly re-entered the roadway and struck the squad car head-on.

The deputies were able to get out of their vehicle and pursue the pickup truck on foot. They secured the driver until more help arrived.

The Sheriff's Office says two people who placed the 911 calls stopped to assist the deputies.
