An Iredell County Sheriff’s Office deputy was involved in a crash Thursday morning that sent one person to the hospital and blocked a lane of Landis Highway.

Trooper C.G. Maher of the N.C. Highway Patrol said the deputy’s patrol car struck a tanker truck near Landis Highway and Teeter Road Thursday morning. He said the deputy was turning onto Landis Highway from Teeter Road and hit the truck. The truck then ran off the road and overturned into a field, Maher said.

The truck driver was transported to the hospital with minor injuries, Maher said.

The investigation is still ongoing and Maher said the investigation will be sent to the District Attorney’s office to determine if charges will be filed.

South Iredell Fire Department, Mooresville Fire-Rescue and Iredell EMS all responded to the wreck.
