AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

A Richmond County Sheriff's deputy was injured Monday when a truck crashed into his motorcycle. 

Deputy Tim Hardin was traveling westbound on Walton Way approaching St. Sebastian Way around 10:41 a.m., according to the sheriff's office. The traffic signal at the intersection was green for Hardin. 

The driver of a pickup truck was traveling eastbound on Walton Way and made a left turn onto St. Sebastian Way, striking Hardin's sheriff's office-issued motorcycle.
