The West Palm Beach Sheriff's Office says a deputy has been airlifted to a hospital after she was struck by a vehicle while on patrol.
Sheriff's spokeswoman Teri Barbera says the deputy was patrolling in the city of Lake Worth Sunday morning on a T3, a scooter-like device. A pickup truck backed out of an alleyway, struck the deputy and then proceeded driving.
Barbera says investigators are unsure if the driver realized he or she had struck someone.
The deputy, whose name has not been released, was transported by helicopter to Delray Medical Center. There was no immediate information on her condition, though Barbera says she had been able to talk over the radio.
