CBS 11 reports the as-of-yet unidentified deputy was assisting a stranded motorist at approximately 1:40 a.m. near the intersection of southbound Interstate 35E and Walnut Hill by providing traffic control. Shortly after 2:15 a.m., as the stranded vehicle was being towed, a black Mercedes SUV struck the tow truck, the disabled vehicle and the deputy’s patrol vehicle.
The Dallas County Sheriff’s Office said the impact knocked the squad car into the deputy, throwing her over the guardrail.
Officers said the Mercedes fled the scene but was caught a short time later near the intersection of Interstate 35E and Harry Hines Boulevard by Dallas County Sheriff’s deputies. The 51-year-old driver was arrested pending charges of intoxication assault causing serious bodily injury.
Dallas Fire-Rescue paramedics transported the deputy to Parkland Hospital in Dallas, where she was treated and released.
