Dakota County sheriff's squad hit while assisting tow truck near Hastings (SD)


Recommended Posts



HASTINGS, Minn. (FOX 9) - A Dakota County sheriff's deputy was hit by a pickup truck while he was in his squad car assisting a tow truck Tuesday night. 

The deputy was dispatched to assist a tow truck driver near the interstection of 160th Street and Goodwin Avenue outside Hastings, Minnesota when his squad car was struck by an oncoming vehicle, according to the sheriff's office. The impact of the crash caused the squad car to spin and get hit a second time. 

Neither the deputy nor the driver of the pickup truck was injured. 


In light of the recent weather events, authorities are reminding drivers to slow down and move over when they see emergency vehicles. The Minnesota State Patrol said 10 of their squad cars have been hit since the beginning of February--five of those crashes had injuries.
