LARWILL, Ind. (AP) — Authorities say a carjacking suspect is expected to face charges after a fiery collision involving a northern Indiana officer's cruiser that killed a police dog.

State police say a Whitley County sheriff's deputy was sitting in his cruiser after setting up stop sticks along an U.S. 30 intersection Wednesday when the suspect's car collided broadside with his cruiser while trying to avoid the sticks.

Police say 31-year-old Clarence Shearer of Fort Wayne was booked Thursday at the Allen County Jail after he was treated for minor injuries.

Court records Friday don't list a lawyer for him.
