A Pasco Sheriff's Office cruiser was involved in a crash Sunday night in New Port Richey after a Jeep drove in front of the deputy, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

About 6:22 p.m., Tina Marie Sturm, 19, of Palm Harbor, was driving a Jeep Wrangler south on Magnolia Valley Drive. Deputy Raymond Williamson, 28, was driving a Chevrolet Impala west on Massachusetts Avenue in the outside lane when Sturm drove in front of the deputy, troopers said.

The deputy's vehicle struck the front of the Jeep, according to the FHP. The Jeep overturned on the driver side, coming to rest in the center of westbound Massachusetts Avenue, blocking both lanes.

Sturm, who was cited for failure to yield to oncoming traffic, was not injured. Williamson was taken to Trinity Medical Center for minor injuries.
