Car Accidents in Texas
Thousands of people sustain injuries every year in Texas car accidents, including police officers. Police officers are often injured on the job, especially when they’re responding to emergency calls because they’re more likely to speed and break traffic laws. Other vehicles are expected to yield or come to a complete stop, but sometimes drivers are distracted and don’t realize where the sirens are coming from. Sometimes police cars collide into one another when they’re both responding to emergency calls and are unable to yield or brake in time.
