An unoccupied Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department vehicle was sideswiped by a passing motorist Wednesday evening.

The incident was reported around 8:30 p.m. near the intersection of Grandview Drive and Newhall Ranch Road, according to Lt. Marc Phillips of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.

The deputy was reportedly out of his vehicle doing traffic control when his vehicle was hit, according to SCV Sheriff’s Station spokeswoman Deputy Natalie Arriaga.

The LASD vehicle reportedly only received damage to the driver’s side mirror, Phillips said.

At least two other vehicles were involved, both of which sustained damage to the front ends.

No injuries were reported as a result of the incident, Phillips added.

The driver remained on the scene, and no arrests were made as a result of the incident, Arriaga said.

The investigation remained ongoing as of Thursday.
