A Snohomish County sheriff’s deputy suffered minor injuries Sunday night when his patrol car struck a horse near Arlington, the sheriff’s office says.
The deputy was responding to a domestic violence call around midnight when he struck the horse in the 3900 block of Stanwood Bryant Road, according to Shari Ireton, the sheriff’s director of communications. The horse, which had escaped from its owner, died at the scene.
The patrol car was damaged beyond repair, Ireton said.
The deputy has been with the sheriff’s office since 2007, she said.
