COMSTOCK PARK, Mich. - A Kent County Sheriff's deputy was involved in a crash with another vehicle Wednesday afternoon.

Deputies say that the officer was at a stop sign at the intersection of Stony Creek Avenue and Lamoreaux Drive NW when a Alpine Twp. resident driving a Hummer failed to negotiate the curve in the road and hit the deputy's cruiser almost head-on.

The driver told deputies that he was coming home from a long day at work and fell asleep behind the wheel.  He was cited for being at-fault.

No injuries are reported.
