HPD officer injured when Chevy Trailblazer runs red light at Greens Road

A Saturday night crash has left a police officer recovering in the hospital.  Apparently the officer was responding to a call in his patrol car with lights and sirens activated when a Chevrolet Trailblazer SUV traveling on the North Freeway feeder road failed to stop for a red light. Police said the Trailblazer t-boned the side of the police car: police plan to investigate whether alcohol was a factor in the crash. Video (see below) from KHOU shows damage to the passenger side front fender and rear fender of the police car, and damage across the entire front of the silver-colored Trailblazer. ABC’s story on the officer involved accident is here.
