COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN)--A Franklin County Sheriff's deputy ended up crashing his cruiser into a home on the city's southwest side Tuesday afternoon.
It happened near the intersection of Briggs Road and South Brinker Avenue. Investigators say the officer was responding to a home to carry out an eviction notice, when another driver pulled into the intersection.
In an effort to avoid a collision in the intersection, the cruiser swerved to avoid the other vehicle, and crashed into the home.
No one was injured in the incident.
Authorities later determined the call for an officer in distress was false.
