A deputy with the Mesa County Sheriff's Office is facing careless driving charges tonight after crashing into a Moped.

It happened around 1 a.m. Thursday at 311/2 and Patterson Roads.

Colorado State Patrol says 26–year–old Ross Young was driving his patrol car on Patterson when he briefly looked down to check his police computer.

When he looked up he saw the Moped but it was too late.

Young hit the Moped going 45 miles per hour and it was going about 25.

The Moped rider was thrown into the center median.

Another car then came along and ran over the Moped, destroying it.

The Moped rider only suffered minor injuries.
