HOUSTON, TX – Four people, including two officers with the Houston Police Department, were hospitalized following a multi-vehicle collision on I-45 Sunday night.
According to KHOU, the crash was reported shortly before midnight in the northbound lanes of the interstate near Park Place Boulevard.
The officers were blocking lanes of travel while a prior crash was being investigated when another vehicle careened into their cruiser. The cruiser was then forced into another lane of travel, where a second vehicle collided with it.
Both officers and two civilians were transported to the hospital for treatment of serious but non-life-threatening injuries.
All northbound lanes were shut down for several hours while emergency crews worked to clear the scene.
