Police say a 22-year-old eastern Idaho driver was looking at a text message on his phone when he hit a sheriff deputy's parked patrol car.
Brian J. Anderson, of Idaho Falls, was treated Tuesday for non-life threatening injuries.
Idaho State Police say Anderson was traveling on U.S. Route 20 north of Rigby when the accident occurred. Police say Anderson was looking at a text message on his phone when he drove into the back of a patrol car parked on the side of the road.
The Idaho State Journal reports (http://bit.ly/KRgTqo) that the Jefferson County sheriff's deputy was not in the patrol car at the time. The vehicle's lights were flashing to alert drivers to a fire in the median of the road.
Anderson was cited for inattentive driving.
