The Bonneville County Sheriffs Office is reminding motorists to be extra careful and slow down during winter driving conditions after a deputy was hit early Tuesday morning between Idaho Falls and Ririe.
The deputy was already on scene of a one-vehicle, non-injury rollover.
The deputy was in his patrol vehicle finishing paperwork while a tow truck was working to remove the over-turned car when the patrol vehicle was hit by a pickup truck.
The driver of the pick-up was taken to the hospital for minor injuries. The deputy was sent to the hospital as a precaution.
