A sheriff's deputy was seriously hurt when he collided with a semi tractor-trailer.

Colorado State Patrol says the semi was turning left into a gravel pit off of southbound highway 150 in Costilla County. That is in the south-central part of the state.

Deputy Schultz was taken to a local hospital before being flown to a hospital in Denver.
