GRANT COUNTY, Ind. - Slick, partially flooded roads played a part in a crash that overturned an Indiana sheriff's office vehicle Friday morning.

The Grant County Sheriff's Office said a Madison County Sheriff's Office vehicle crashed on Interstate 69 in Grant County near the exit for State Road 18 (exit 264).

The vehicle landed upside-down when it crashed. Officials said no one was seriously injured and it's believed the slick roads led to the crash.

The driver was later identified as 45-year-old Capt. Robert Olesky, an 18-year veteran with the MCSO. Authorities said Olesky suffered some bumps and cuts but refused treatment at the scene.
