A Lake County Sheriff's deputy was injured in a crash with a garbage truck on Wadsworth Road in Waukegan early Thursday, authorities said.

Lake County Sheriff's Sgt. Sara Balmes said the 5:35 a.m. accident closed Wadsworth Road between Lewis Road and Green Bay Road. The road was reopened at about 9:30 a.m., she said.

The deputy was treated and released from Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville, where he was taken after the accident, Balmes said.

She added the accident is being investigated by the Waukegan Police Department because the crash happened on a stretch of road just inside the city limits.
