A DeWitt County deputy's squad car escaped heavy damage and no one was hurt in an incident in rural DeWitt County Thursday night that could have ended much worse than it did.
DeWitt County Sheriff Mike Walker tells Regional Radio News, one of his deputies was directing traffic on the scene of a vehicle that had gone off the road on Route 54 near Parnell Road when a driver approached the scene and lost control of the vehicle and ran into the deputy's squad car. Sheriff Walker says they are very fortunate no one was hurt.
If any citations or tickets are issued, it will be issued by the Illinois State Police. Sheriff Walker says State Police were on the scene after the incident involving their squad car and is just relieved no one was hurt.
With more potential treacherous weather on the way this weekend, the Sheriff implores everyone to be safe on the roads and use caution.
