COOPER CITY, Fla. - A Broward Sheriff's Office deputy and another driver were injured Thursday afternoon in a car crash in Cooper City, authorities said.

The crash was reported in the area of Southwest 52nd Street and 100th Avenue.

BSO officials said the deputy and the other driver were taken to Memorial Regional Hospital.

The deputy did not suffer serious injuries, authorities said. The other driver was taken to the hospital as a level 2 trauma alert.

According to a BSO spokeswoman, the agency's dive team was searching a canal near the scene after a bicycle was found next to the silver Nissan involved in the crash.

Deputies said it's unclear whether anyone was on the bike, but they are searching for the canal out of an abundance of caution. 

The cause of the crash is under investigation.

Northbound lanes of Palm Avenue were closed in the area during the investigation, as well as westbound lanes on 52nd Street at 101st Avenue.
