HOUSTON—An off-duty Harris County Sheriff’s Deputy was involved in an accident with a wrecker Wednesday.
It happened around 2:30 a.m. on the 290 feeder at 43rd Street.
The deputy, who was working an extra job, had set up some barrels and a trash truck to keep drivers away from a construction zone.
A wrecker came down the road, blew through the barrels and crashed into the deputy’s squad car.
The squad car hit the deputy.
Just after the first crash, a second tow truck from the same company crashed into the first tow truck.
The deputy’s injuries appeared to be minor.
HPD officers arrested the first wrecker driver on suspicion of drunken driving.
