A Colorado sheriff’s deputy was injured Sunday night when he used his patrol vehicle to stop a wrong-way driver on I-70.

Lincoln County Deputy Michael "Mike" Hutton positioned his patrol cruiser in the path of the wrong-way driver.

"We got multiple 911s about it," Hutton said. "Before I knew it, I saw the headlights coming at me and a line of cars behind me at mile marker 385. And within seconds, you know, I had to make the decision to place my vehicle at a little bit of an angle and just take that hit myself."

The wrong-way vehicle was reportedly traveling at 75 mph, the Denver Channel reports.

Hutton and the other driver only suffered minor injuries.
