Three people including a Hamilton County sheriff's deputy were hurt in a two-crash with entrapment involving a marked sheriff's vehicle Friday morning, authorities said.
The victims were all taken to University of Cincinnati Medical Center.
The deputy suffered minor injuries when his sport utility cruiser collided with a car at Quebec and Queen City avenues just before 11 a.m.
The other two victims' conditions were not immediately available.
A sheriff's official said the agency's traffic investigators rushed to the scene.
The cruiser involved in the crash is one that assists the sheriff's drug unit, RENU, said Lt. Tony Orue.
