A Scott County deputy was not injured today when a vehicle struck his squad car on U.S. 61 just south of Long Grove.

Iowa State Patrol said the deputy had parked on the shoulder of southbound U.S. 61 to investigate an accident. He was out of the vehicle when another southbound vehicle struck the patrol car.

No one was injured, and the State Patrol is investigating the crash.
