Several people sustained injuries after a police-involved vehicle collision on US 175 last Friday morning, according to a local news source.
Dallas law enforcement officials said that the incident took place along the eastbound lanes of the 12400 block of CF Hawn Freeway (Highway 175). Police said that a police vehicle, transporting a prisoner, for yet unknown reasons, got struck by another vehicle. Further details surrounding the accident remain unclear at this time.
The officer sustained leg injuries as a result of the crash. He was not hospitalized.
The prisoner and the driver of the other car were also injured and were immediately transported to an area hospital where they received medical treatment. Authorities said that they suffered injuries that were considered non-life threatening.

Injuries caused by vehicle collisions can vary from crash to crash. Some injuries may heal within a span of days while others could paralyze a victim’s body for a month. The most commonly known car accident injuries include neck and chest and head and back injuries. Broken and ligament damages are also quite common.
Sometimes, a car accident can cause serious injuries to multiple parties—and filing a claim can get complicated. To make sure your claim is successful, you need to gather supporting evidence and documents that can back up your claim. It could be a detailed account of the accident you are involved in or documents indicating the extent of injuries you sustained. These may include a video or photograph of the scene, police reports, and medical records, to name a few.
