HPD officers hurt after accident with pickup truck on Scott Street

A collision last night on Scott Street has left two HPD officers injured.  The officers were responding to a burglary call at around 9:30pm and were driving with emergency lights and sirens in operation. The police car was heading northbound on Scott Street when a man in a pickup truck pulled in front of them and they were unable to avoid the collision. The police car struck a tree after the initial crash with the truck.  The officers were taken to Memorial Hermann hospital for treatment.

If you, a friend or a family member have been injured in a car accident, Smith & Hassler’s experienced personal injury attorneys are available to give you a free consultation either in-person or by phone.  Sometimes people injured in car accident wait before consulting an attorney. They have good intentions: not wanting to seem “sue happy,” waiting to see if their injuries will get better or because an insurance adjuster is discouraging them from seeking legal advice (that happens).  It is better to know your rights early in the process and have an experienced Houston personal injury attorney explain the steps involved in car accident injury claim and what you can do NOW to increase the chances of a good outcome.
