An on-duty Adams County deputy was involved in a crash early Tuesday morning on Interstate 70 near Bennett.

Both the deputy and other driver involved were taken to the hospital by ambulance.

While CSP initially said the deputy pulled the other driver from their vehicle, they later clarified and said that person was already outside their car and complaining of an injury when they first encountered the deputy.

The incident prompted authorities to close Interstate 70 near Bennett for the investigation, but the highway has since reopened.

Both the deputy and other driver were taken to the hospital by ambulance. That person’s condition is unknown.
