Car Going Wrong Way Part Of Deadly Crashes
HOUSTON (AP) — Three Houston officers have been hurt after a suspected drunken driver hit a police SUV stopped near the site of a deadly rollover accident.
Investigators say the driver of the car that smashed into the police vehicle before dawn Thursday was detained on a DWI charge.
Police responded to a vehicle rollover wreck near Highway 288. One person in the vehicle died, while another was injured and transported to a hospital.
A car going the wrong way then plowed into a patrol SUV blocking the earlier accident scene — injuring two officers standing outside the police vehicle and one inside.
All three officers were transported to a hospital. Details on their conditions weren't immediately released.
Houston police didn't immediately release the name of the person killed in the original wreck.
