A Palm Beach County sheriff's deputy suffered minor injuries after a Tuesday morning crash on Southern Boulevard.
PBSO spokeswoman Teri Barbera said the deputy was trying to stop a vehicle in the eastbound lanes of Southern Boulevard near Haverhill Road.
However, a Jeep was cut off by another vehicle.
The Jeep then swerved and struck the back of the PBSO patrol car. The driver of the Jeep was not injured.
However, the airbags inside the deputy's cruiser were deployed, causing him to receive minor injuries.
Two eastbound lanes were closed at 6:40 a.m. between Kirk Road and Congress Avenue.
All lanes were back open around 7:30 a.m.
