Houston – Suspected DUI Collision Injures Officer on Antoine Dr

Posted on Tuesday, July 30th, 2019 at 10:59 am    

A police officer was sent to a hospital after getting involved in a car accident with a suspected drunk driver on Antoine Drive, Saturday.

A preliminary investigation shows that a Houston police officer was requested to assist in a previous accident which took place on Antoine near US Highway 290. Shortly after, a vehicle driven by an alleged DUI driver crashed into the firetruck and tow trucks blocking the crash scene, hitting the officer in the process.

The impact of the collision sent the officer into the ground where he hit his head on the asphalt. He was rushed to the hospital where he was listed in stable condition.

Local authorities arrested the driver of the vehicle involved. No further details are available as the crash remains under investigation.

Anyone who has information about the case should get in touch with the Houston Police Department.

Our sincerest sympathies to the victim of this unfortunate accident. We pray for their full recovery as we hope that the Houston 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 a fair compensation for the trauma you experienced and the injuries you have suffered.
