WINCHESTER -- A Frederick County Sheriff's deputy is charged with reckless driving after a two-vehicle crash Wednesday.
The incident occurred shortly before 12:30 a.m. on Interstate 81 in Frederick County near the Kernstown interchange, according to state police Sgt. F.L. Tyler.
Chad D. Harlow, 29, of Stephens City, was driving a 1997 Hyundai Elantra north on the interstate. A sheriff's vehicle driven by Deputy Cynthia L. Cohen, 26, struck the Hyundai in the rear, Tyler said Thursday.
The Hyundai ran off the side of the highway and struck a guardrail, according to Tyler.
Trooper D.E. Adams investigated the crash and issued a summons to the deputy to appear in court on a charge of reckless driving, Tyler said.
Neither driver reported injuries, according to Tyler.
The collision caused an estimated $6,500 in damage to the Hyundai and $5,500 to the deputy's vehicle, Tyler said.
When asked whether the deputy was attempting to make a traffic stop, Tyler said police are not releasing more information on the incident.
Capt. John Heflin, of the Sheriff's Office, said Cohen worked the late shift Thursday and remains on duty with the agency.
