Information released by the Iowa State Patrol says the deputy was northbound on County Road Ki52 just south of 160th Street when his police cruiser left the roadway while entering a curve. The SUV then entered the ditch, vaulted over a driveway and rolled before coming to a rest on the driver’s side on a gravel driveway.
The deputy, who has not been identified, was airlifted to a Sioux Falls hospital with what are described as incapacitating injuries. The crash remains under investigation by the Iowa State Patrol.
