HPD Officer suffers arm injury in crash during heavy rain

Channel 13 News posted a brief report this morning of a collision involving an HPD police cruiser. The accident happened around 3:00 am on West 34th Street at Ella Boulevard near Houston Heights. There was heavy rain at the time of the crash. The officer was alone in her police cruiser heading westbound when another driver in a white-colored Toyota sedan made a u-turn in front of her. The officer was unable to stop in time and rear-ended the Toyota. The driver who pulled out in front of the officer said the heavy rain made it impossible to see the police cruiser. The officer’s airbag deployed and injured her arm, she was transported to nearby Memorial Hermann Northwest Hospital to be treated.
