(KYTX) - A Smith County Sheriff's Deputy involved in a wreck that sent another person to the hospital.

DPS troopers were called to the Loop 49 and Old Jacksonville exit to investigate around 7 Thursday night.

We're told the deputy was heading to call when he crossed in front of a pickup truck. Troopers say the deputy may have thought the truck was going to stop because there was a stop sign in the area at one time, but that's not the case anymore.

The driver of the pick-up was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

The accident remains under investigation.
