Deputy hurt after car crash near Alpine

Posted: Updated:

ALPINE (CNS) - A speeding motorist crashed head-on into an on-duty sheriff's deputy on a rain-slicked Alpine road early Thursday, sending the lawman to the hospital with minor injuries, authorities said.

The two-car crash on Willows Road near Viejas Casino & Resort occurred about 3:20 a.m., according to San Diego County sheriff's Lt. Dave Schaller.

The deputy was traveling westbound when the eastbound motorist lost control of his speeding vehicle and crossed over a center divider, striking the deputy's car head-on, Schaller said.

The deputy suffered a concussion and was transported to Grossmont Hospital for treatment. The other motorist was cited for reckless driving and suffered minor injuries.

Neither drugs nor alcohol were believed to be factors in the crash, Schaller said.
