HEBRON, KY (FOX19) - A Boone County sheriff's deputy was released from the hospital Wednesday after he was struck by a vehicle on Interstate 275.

Police say Deputy Rosing made a traffic stop at the 7.5 mile marker on I-275 around 5:30 p.m. Dispatchers checked his status just before 6 p.m., but a few moments later, he reported that he had been involved in an accident. Deputy Rosing's vehicle was parked on the side of the road with emergency lights on when a 1998 Jeep Wrangler crashed into it. This moved the police vehicle into a 2008 Chrysler Sebring, also stopped at the scene. This crashed the vehicle into Deputy Rosing.
The vehicle continued along the highway after hitting Deputy Rosing, also hitting a 2008 Ford Focus. This impact moved the vehicle into the median. In total, 5 people were injured in the accident, including Deputy Rosing. All injuries were considered non-life threatening.
