OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE FROM GRANT COUNTY: A Grant County Sheriff's Deputy escaped serious injury after his vehicle collided with a light pole late Wednesday night.
 
Deputy John McMillan, age 40 of Ephrata, was enroute to a report of a domestic disturbance around 11:30 p.m. involving a person chasing others with a shovel. McMillan, driving a Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor with emergency lights activated, was traveling southbound on State Route 17 approaching Grape Drive in Moses Lake. Deputy McMillan's vehicle slid on standing water in the roadway, causing him to lose control of the car. The standing water was caused by heavy rain.

Deputy McMillan sustained non-life-threatening injuries and was transported by AMR Ambulance to Samaritan Hospital in Moses Lake, where he was treated and released. He is now resting at home.
 
The vehicle was damaged beyond repair.
 
The investigation into the cause of this collision is being conducted by the Washington State Patrol. The Grant County Sheriff's Office will wait until that investigation is complete before releasing any more information.
 
There were no other vehicles damaged and no other injuries.
