MANATEE, Fla. (AP) -- A Tampa Bay area deputy totaled a patrol car and hospitalized two other drivers with minor injuries after authorities say she failed to stop for a red light.

The Manatee County Sheriff's Office reports that the deputy had just looked up from her work-issued computer Tuesday afternoon when she rear-ended one vehicle and pushed it into another one. Both of the other vehicles had been stopped at a red light.

The deputy reported the brakes of her car were not working properly.

The Bradenton Herald reports that all occupants were taken to a nearby hospital to be treated for minor injuries.
