A Barren County constable was injured in a collision over the weekend after a deer ran in front of his 2004 Ford Crown Victoria on Hiseville Road, according to a Barren County Sheriff's Office press release.

Samson Community Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. BCSO was assisted on scene by Barren-Metcalfe County EMS and Hiseville Volunteer Fire Department.
