POLK COUNTY, Iowa (KCRG) - A Polk County deputy is okay after a semi slammed into his patrol vehicle Wednesday.

The deputy ran from his patrol car on I-80 when a semi lost control during the icy weather, the Polk County Sheriff's Office said in a Facebook post.

The sheriff's office says this should be a reminder for drivers to use caution and watch out for emergency vehicles.
