HINCKLEY – A DeKalb County sheriff's deputy was treated for minor injuries after an SUV struck his squad car during a traffic stop Sunday night in Hinckley.

Illinois State Police Lt. Brian Windle said Noelani Mesubed, 30, of Aurora, was driving a 2006 Chevrolet SUV east on Route 30 near Pritchard Road around 11:30 p.m. Sunday.

Windle said Mesubed told police a car was traveling west on Route 30 as she approached the deputy in his squad car performing a traffic stop.

“She panicked and jerked her car to the right, striking the back of the squad,” Windle said.

Police are not disclosing the deputy's name, but said the deputy was transported to Kishwaukee Hospital for minor injuries and released. No one in Mesubed's car was injured, according to police.

Mesubed was cited for failing to yield to an emergency vehicle, also known as Scott's law, Windle said.
