COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho - UPDATE: Thankfully no one was hurt, but a crash has put two patrol cars for the Kootenai County Sheriff's Office out of service. 

Around 5pm Tuesday, two deputies were responding to a domestic violence call, when one deputy rear ended the other as they drove down Highway 95. 

Southbound traffic on 95 was down to one lane after the accident, but traffic got back to normal a short time later. 

Idaho State Police are now investigating exactly what caused the crash, to possibly determine if someone is to blame. 

A Kootenai County spokesman says the sheriff's office purchased the patrol cars used, and now they're each worth about $3,500. As of Tuesday night, the two patrol cars are in the shop and we won't know if they're totaled until a repairman takes a closer look later this week. The spokesman says the equipment from both of the cars will be reusable in different patrol vehicles. 

Although the cars are out service, the sheriff's office has back-up vehicles so the deputies can get back to their patrols.
