Teen charged with drunk driving after collision with Harris County deputy

A 16-year-old was charged with driving under the influence Friday after he collided head-on with a police vehicle while driving on Texas Highway 6.

According to a report released by the Harris County sheriff’s office, the accident occurred as the deputy was stopped at an intersection on northbound Highway 6 waiting to turn left onto West Little York. He was struck head-on by the teen’s pickup truck that was traveling southbound at the time.

The impact of the collision sent the deputy’s car into another police officer’s vehicle. The teen was later arrested and charged with driving under the influence. The first deputy was transported to the hospital in order to be treated for a wrist injury.
