A Lewis and Clark County Sheriff’s Office patrol car is out of commission after it was involved in a crash on Wednesday, October 17.
Around 2:30 p.m. the deputy vehicle was headed north on Benton Avenue when it hit a white passenger vehicle turning off Hauser Avenue.
The Helena Police Department investigated the crash and said the passenger vehicle was traveling the wrong way on a one-way section of Hauser and failed to yield to traffic.
The Sheriff’s Office vehicle struck the rear passenger door of the other vehicle causing damage to both vehicles and disabling the patrol car.
Lewis and Clark County Sheriff Leo Dutton said the vehicle will be out of commission until funds become available to repair the patrol car.
Dutton added he’s thankful no one was injured during the collision.
The driver of the passenger vehicle was cited for driving the wrong way on a one-way street.
