The Pierce County sheriff’s deputy is resting at home today after he was injured in a collision Thursday morning while responding to a pursuit of a bank robber.

The deputy was released from the hospital Thursday evening, sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer reported today. He’s banged up and will be off work for an as-yet undetermined amount of time.

The deputy and a Tacoma police sergeant collided Thursday morning at the intersection of South 19th Street and Tacoma Avenue. They were both responding to an on-going police pursuit of a bank robbery suspect.
