AUBURN – A DeKalb County Sheriff’s deputy suffered back pain and his canine partner suffered abrasions when their squad car was struck by another vehicle near Auburn Saturday.
38-year-old Mathew Haber of Auburn was sitting in his squad car with red lights on the south side of the County Road 48 overpass on I-69 as another officer worked a crash.
A Ford Mustang traveling around 70 miles per hour lost control and slid sideways into the rear of the squad car.
20-year-old Samuel Crago of Fort Wayne was driving the Mustang and suffered severe bleeding from the face. He was charged with speed too fast for the conditions.
Deputy Haber was taken to Parkview DeKalb Hospital, and his canine was taken to Auburn Hills Animal Hospital.
