    Deputy strikes UPS truck - The Hawkeye

    An unmarked Des Moines County Sheriff's Office vehicle sustained thousands of dollars in damages after it struck a parked United Parcel Service delivery truck, Burlington Police officials said.

    Breckon, a report indicated, told police he was using his in-car computer and did not noticed the UPS truck parked alongside the street until the last second.

    The deputy swerved in an attempt to miss the delivery truck, but a panel of the Explorer still struck the left rear bumper of the UPS truck.

    I would say the police officer may have received a warning notice at most not the termination that a UPS driver would receive if the situation were reversed. We had a driver charged with an avoidable when he was stopped at a light and hit by fleeing car of a police chase.
