The sheriff’s office said deputies were working a crash on Route 17 in front of York High School. The patrol car was blocking one lane so authorities could safely work the crash when a drunk driver came through the area and sideswiped the patrol car.

The deputy was not in the vehicle at the time of the crash and no one was injured.
