CLOVERDALE -- A Thursday crash heavily damaged a Cloverdale Police car but left the deputy inside unharmed.
At 10:01 p.m., Deputy Town Marshal Tyler Turner, 28, was assisting Indiana State Police in attempting to catch a fleeing vehicle when the wreck occurred.
Turner was following the state-led pursuit northbound on Meridian Line Road in the 2007 Dodge Charger when he came to a curve in the road and lost control of the car. The vehicle left the road and hit a tree.
"It was due to the road conditions," explained Cloverdale Town Marshal John Chadd. "He's OK, the car did what it was supposed to do and all the airbags deployed."
Turner was uninjured in the crash and the suspect was apprehended.
Damage was estimated at $10,001-$25,000.
