The deputy, whose name was not released, was traveling south when another vehicle in the opposite direction turned left in front of him to get onto southbound I-71, Illanz said.

The other driver was not hurt, but the deputy was taken to Bethesda Arrow Springs in Lebanon.

“He’s OK,” said Lt. Ron Day of the Warren County Sheriff’s Office, who added that the deputy had been treated and released from the hospital.
