2 Squad Cars Hit In Rice County

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Police say glare ice is to blame after two deputy squad cars were hit at the scene of another crash in Rice County.

The Rice County Sheriff’s Office said a deputy went into the median and rolled her squad, after hitting the ice on Interstate 35, while responding to a crash. A second deputy arrived on scene to help and was hit by another driver who lost control.

The second deputy was not inside his squad when it was rear-ended.

The squad that rolled is likely totaled, according to authorities. The deputy inside the rolled squad was transported to the hospital but is expected to be OK.

At this time, police say it isn’t clear if the driver who hit the squad will be ticketed.
