Randolph, N.Y. (WKBW ) - The incident happened in the Cattaraugus County Village of Randolph. The deputy apparently got out of his patrol car to take care of another accident.
Deputy Jordan Haines, a three-year veteran with the Cattaraugus Sheriff's Department was responding to a car versus deer accident when he was struck by a truck.
At 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, a driver hit a deer on Route 394 in the Village of East Randolph. That driver called for help and that's when deputy Haines arrived.
Haines got out of his patrol car and put down the deer by shooting it three times. As Haines was still standing on the side of the road, a man driving a pick up truck struck him. After being struck, Haines was able to make it back to his patrol car to call for help.
"The officer was dispatched and at the deer's hind corners off the road way. The deputy was able to contact dispatcher to get some help," Sergeant Gary Sergue with the State Police in Jamestown said.
Route 394 was shut down for about five hours while investigators reconstructed the accident. Deputy Haines was treated and released from WCA Hospital in Jamestown. No one else was injured in the crash.
State Police interviewed the driver of the truck. At this time, the investigation is still being investigated. No charges have been filed.
