A Wayne County Sheriff’s deputy was treated at the hospital after his SUV was pushed into oncoming traffic during a crash Tuesday morning in Sodus.
According to the Sheriff’s Office, Sergeant Gilbert Sterk was on patrol and headed eastbound on Route 104 around 8:45 a.m. Tuesday when he stopped for another eastbound vehicle turning left onto Redman Road.
While he was stopped, deputies say a vehicle operated by a Rochester man hit the cruiser’s rear-end, pushing Sgt. Sterk into traffic. Sterk’s vehicle was then hit by a vehicle headed west in the oncoming lane.
Sgt. Sterk was transported to Strong Memorial Hospital where he was treated and released. The Rochester driver is still in the hospital for treatment.
The oncoming driver was not hurt.
The investigation into the crash is ongoing, deputies say.
