Grand Prairie, TX Police Officer Hit by Drunk Driver

Posted on May 17, 2011

Two separate North Texas car crashes, occurring within hours of one another, lead to multiple injuries.  While injurious car crashes are common occurrences, these crashes were unusual due to the fact that each involved a police vehicle. 

The first crash took place in Flower Mound, TX. The late evening crash, near the intersection of FM 1171 and Morriss Road, involved four cars.  The vehicle that sustained the most damage was a Flower Mound police cruiser.  The front end of the vehicle was crushed and three people, including a police officer, were taken to local hospitals.  Those the specifics of the injuries sustained during the crash were not known, police stated that none of the injuries were life-threatening.

The next crash occurred at 11 p.m. on I 30 near Loop 12.  A Grand Prairie police officer was assisting a driver with a disabled vehicle when another driver struck the cruiser.  Police believe that the driver was drunk at the time of the crash.  The driver was taken to the hospital and his blood was tested for the presence of alcohol.

As Dallas personal injury attorneys we know that the initial impact of a crash is only the beginning of an often long road to recovery.  We hope that the injured officers and drivers are well on their way to a full recovery.
