At around 10 p.m. on Tuesday, February 5, 2019, a Houston police officer was involved in a crash off Highway 290 and 34th Street while he was transporting two juveniles and an adult female.
According to initial reports, the driver of a red car was heading westbound on 34th Street when somehow that driver crashed into the patrol car.
The female juvenile suffered an injury to her mouth while the driver of the red car had minor injuries on his arm. The officer, on the other hand, was unharmed.
Investigators are still trying to determine who was at fault in this crash.
