Three people were injured Thursday when a Rock County Sheriff’s deputy  collided with a tow truck just northeast of Beloit.

The deputy was responding to a report of a gunshot wound in another jurisdiction shortly before 4 p.m. when he “was involved in a crash” with the truck at the intersection of E L T Townline Road and South Prairie Avenue in the town of Turtle, according to the sheriff’s office.

The deputy and two occupants of the tow truck all sustained minor injuries, the sheriff said.

The deputy remained hospitalized Friday morning with non-life-threatening injuries, while the two occupants of the tow truck were treated and released Thursday night.

No names were released.

The Wisconsin State Patrol is investigating the crash.
