A Peoria County deputy was injured and his K9 dog killed while en route to a call tonight when a car changing lanes smashed into the driver's side of the squad car. Jason Buckly, 28, was headed north on Adams Street in Peoria's North Valley about 6:50 p.m. when a car in the immediate left lane, also going north, veered right into the squad car. VEHICLE ACCIDENT, EUTHANIZED    Buckley initially complained of neck and back pain. He was transported to OSF Saint Francis Medical Center, where his injuries were being described as non life-threatening at 9 p.m. Uno the German Shepherd, the newest of the Peoria County Sheriff's Department's three police dogs, received massive injuries. He was euthanized at a local animal clinic Thursday night. Neither the driver of the other car, Jason Coyne, 21, of Lakeville and nor his passenger, Allison Gates, 22, of Decatur, were injured.
