Charges are pending in an injury crash early Monday that involved a Huron County sheriff's deputy and a local driver.

Deputy Joshua D. Kaufman, 24, of 4766 Ohio 4, Bellevue, was about to make a left-hand turn on Ohio 18, said troopers with the state Highway Patrol. The other driver was Shannon L. Winkle, 37, of 1375 DeRussey Road, Collins, whom troopers said was driving straight ahead.

The collision happened at 3:49 a.m.

Kaufman had minor injuries, but no information was available from the patrol if the deputy was transported from the scene. Troopers reported Winkle sustained minor injuries and Citizens Ambulance transported her to Fisher-Titus Medical Center.

"(There were) slight injuries to both parties involved. Our deputy and the other driver were both taken to Fisher-Titus and treated and released," sheriff's Capt. Ted Patrick said.

Maj. Greg Englund said the sheriff's office could perform its own investigation after receiving the report from the patrol.

"There was damage to the front end of the cruiser and rear quarter panel," Englund said.

No further information was available about the crash.
