This is starting to seem like just another day in Houston.
ANOTHER WRECKELSS DAY IN HOUSTON
A person driving a Lexus approached train tracks as the crossing arms were down and red flashing lights were engaged. The driver ignored the lights and recklessly swerved around the crossing arms.
After the erratic driver weaseled its way around the train tracks, it ignored traffic lights in an intersection nearby. The Lexus blew past the red light and crashed head-on with a SWAT vehicle.
Sean Teare, head of the Vehicular Division in Harris County, explained that the Swat officer was driving through a green light in the intersection when the Lexus slammed into it.
THE GRUESOME VIDEO FOOTAGE
Footage from the gruesome scene showed severe damage to both vehicles involved. The passenger in the Lexus suffered serious injuries and was taken to a hospital. The SWAT officer reported having chest pains and was taken to a hospital.
Speeding, intoxication, and cell phone distraction were not believed to be a factor. The driver of the Lexus could face a second-degree felony and up to 20 years in prison.
