VANCOUVER, WA (KPTV) – A Clark County Sheriff’s Office deputy was injured in a five-car crash in Vancouver on Monday.
The crash occurred just before 5 p.m. on Northeast 162nd Avenue and Northeast Fourth Plain Boulevard.
The sheriff’s office says a deputy was driving with lights and sirens on to a reported stabbing when a Honda CR-V hit the deputy. That caused the deputy’s cruiser to hit three stopped cars.
The deputy was taken to the hospital by ambulance with head, neck and back pain. He is expected to be OK.
The driver of the Honda had minor injuries and went to the hospital in a private vehicle.
Vancouver police are investigating the crash.
The original stabbing call was determined to be unfounded and was made up by someone having a mental health crisis, according to the sheriff’s office.
