A man accused of driving drunk was involved in a collision with a Steuben County Sheriff’s squad car in Angola on Sunday.

A deputy was on patrol and driving eastbound on Maumee Street around 10 p.m. when a Dodge Caraban pulled out of a gas station near I-69 and directly into his path, according to a sheriff’s media release.

WANE-TV says the driver and deputy suffered minor injuries. The man driving the truck was identified as Candido Guerrero. An Angola Police officer who responded to the scene determined alcohol may have been a factor in the crash.

Guerrero was arrested on misdemeanor counts of operating a vehicle while intoxicated and endangering a person, operating a vehicle while never receiving a valid license and false informing.

After being booked into Steuben County Jail, he posted bond and was released.
