The wreck happened around 7:30 p.m. at the intersection of N.C. Highway 42 and Mount Pleasant Road, officials said.

In an image from the scene, a black sports sedan was off the road and a Wake County Sheriff’s Office cruiser was damaged and had airbags deployed.

The deputy who was driving the cruiser, Timothy E. Jarvis, has been with the Wake County Sheriff’s Office since January 2008, officials said.

Jarvis, who was taken to WakeMed for treatment, was not on his way to a call when the crash happened, authorities said.

There is no word on what caused the crash, which happened south of Garner.

The North Carolina State Highway Patrol is handling the investigation.
