On Tuesday night, an incident in West Harris County involving a high-speed pursuit resulted in injuries to a Texas DPS trooper and several others.

Dang, this one was hard to watch.

The dashcam video opens with a view of an intersection in Texas at night. An Amazon truck is pulling into the intersection, unaware of the Texas Straight Trooper speeding toward it.


Red Light

The State Trooper is going so fast, that there was no way he could slow down. He flies over the intersection and crashes directly into the side of the truck and the front of his vehicle is crushed underneath, even though the Amazon truck was equipped with the metal on the side underneath the cargo bed that is supposed to keep vehicles from sliding under them.

Just a note: The trooper had a red light. They still have to stop and then proceed and so do fire/EMS.


That Looked Bad

As the truck slowly comes to a stop out of frame, the State Trooper's SUV rotates toward the camera and we can see the cab is totally crushed.


He's Going to Be OK

After the crash, it is reported that other motorists got out of their vehicles to help the trooper, who was rushed to the hospital. The trooper is said to have non-life-threatening injuries.

This incident serves as a good reminder to look both ways at an intersection before you go regardless of whether or not you have a green light.
