HPD officer involved in crash with suspected drunken driver in southwest Houston, police say



HOUSTON – A Houston police officer was involved in a crash in southwest Houston early Thursday.

The crash happened at 4:48 a.m. in the 12800 block of South Post Oak Road at Allum Road.

The officer’s vehicle was hit from behind by a suspected drunken driver and the officer was trapped in the vehicle for a time, but was eventually freed.

Police said the officer saw a vehicle fire and a crash and was responding to it when a suspected drunken driver hit the back of his vehicle.

Police said the officer was sent to the hospital and “banged up” but has non-life-threatening injuries.

The car fire that the officer was responding to was apparently left behind when it caught fire.

I have sound knowledge of national and international issues and have covered stories across beats, including politics, parliament, legal and crime like drugs and Human Trafficking at Asian News International (ANI), where I currently work.
