Police vehicles in Shawano Co. damaged in crash

SHAWANO (AP) -- Two law enforcement officers had a scary morning in Shawano when their squad cars were struck by a vehicle driven by a woman who was later cited for drunken driving.

The Shawano County sheriff's office says in a news release that it happened about 4:10 a.m. Sunday when a deputy was conducting a traffic stop along a city street in Shawano.

A city officer stopped to assist and was parked behind the deputy's car when a third vehicle driven by a 44-year-old woman struck the city police car and bounced into the deputy's vehicle.

The deputy was treated and released from a local hospital for minor injuries, but no one else was hurt. The woman was arrested and cited for drunken driving.

The Wisconsin State Patrol is investigating.
