Dallas, TX – 5 Injured in Major Car Accident on U.S. 175
Dallas, TX (July 13, 2019) On the morning of July 12th, a major car accident involving a Dallas police officer happened on U.S. 175, also known as C.F. Hawn Freeway. Two police officers had just pulled over an RV on the service road of the freeway when the accident happened. They were sitting in their squad car with a prisoner in the back seat when a vehicle rear-ended them.
When emergency crews arrived at the accident, they found one of the police officers with a leg injury. Three occupants in the RV also sustained injuries, as well as the driver who rear-ended the patrol vehicle. All of the injured victims were rushed to a nearby hospital for immediate medical attention.
Investigators are working to determine why the vehicle rear-ended the patrol car.
Our thoughts are with everyone involved in the collision, we wish all five injured victims a fast recovery.
Car Accidents in Texas
Rear-end accidents are a common type of car collision in Texas. All drivers owe it to themselves and everyone else on the road to pay attention to their surroundings at all times. When they take their eyes off of the road even just for a few seconds, they risk crashing into the back of another vehicle, especially if the vehicle had to suddenly brake for emergency purposes.
