The Austin Police Department is conducting an investigation about a car accident on Parkfield Drive near Payton Gin Road which involved a suspected drunk driver and injured two patrol officers last February 25.

Just after 8:00 p.m., two police offers were dispatched at the intersection of Parkfield and Payton Gin when a passing vehicle suddenly hit their patrol vehicle. According to the police officers, the said car was heading west and made a turn at the cross street where it crashed into their vehicle.

Both officers sustained injuries from the force of impact–one of them was treated at the scene while the other was transported to a hospital for further evaluation. He was later released, as per reports.

Officials identified the suspect driver as 43-year-old Jorge Lopez Noyola. He was intoxicated during the time of the accident.

Investigation is underway.

Our sincerest sympathies to the victim of this unfortunate accident. We pray for their full recovery as we hope that the Austin Police Department will do everything to bring those responsible to justice.

Drunk driving in Texas commonly result in a serious injury and sometimes, death. While accidents are fortuitous events that cannot be foreseen, they can be prevented if only drivers had simply put their complete attention on the road and taken their responsibility as drivers more seriously. This is why, despite conscious efforts by government to combat the increasing number of fatalities and injuries every year, crashes due to negligence is still on the rise.
While it can be difficult to remain calm in a situation like this, it is important to know that you can be entitled to compensation and claims following a collision. If you or your loved one has been injured in a car accident caused by a negligent party or a driver under the influence of alcohol, you may have a right to fair compensation for the trauma you experienced and the injuries you have suffered.
