LA PORTE COUNTY, Ind. -- A La Porte County Sheriff's deputy was not injured in a crash that happened early Tuesday morning.

Deputy Alex Clemons contacted the dispatch center after being involved in a crash just after 6:30 a.m. CST.

He told dispatchers he was trapped in his vehicle, but was not injured.

By the time fellow deputies responded to the crash at CR400 S and Long Lane, Deputy Clemons had freed himself and checked on the other driver, reports said.

The investigation revealed a Chevy Malibu was traveling east on CR400 South when the driver stopped at the stop sign, then entered the intersection.
