2 FWPD Officers, 1 Other Injured in Hit-and-Run Crash on I-35 in Fort Worth, TX

Fort Worth, TX — November 10, 2022, two FWPD officers and a civilian were injured in a hit-and-run crash on I-35 in Fort Worth.

Authorities say the incident happened early Thursday morning along I-35 near Berry Street. Preliminary investigation suggests two Fort Worth police officers were helping three stranded drivers whose vehicles were disabled by debris in the road.

As the officers worked at the scene another vehicle approached and crashed into their patrol car, pushing it into one of the disabled vehicles. That driver remained at the scene, but as one officer pulled the other and the civilian to safety another car crashed into the impact site. The second striking driver fled the scene.

Both officers and the civilian received unspecified injuries in the wreck.

No further information is currently available.

Commentary on FWPD Officers Hit-and-Run in Fort Worth

It's important to find runaway drivers after any hit-and-run collision, but if reports have their facts straight it seems the driver who actually caused the victims' injuries remained at the scene. Hopefully investigators will try to make sense out of exactly why they plowed into the scene where police were trying to help some stranded motorists.

If comment sections underneath news reports about this crash are any indication, a lot of people seem ready to blame the incident on alcohol. Whether it's the early-morning time of the crash or the driver smashing into a police car, many folks quickly pointed fingers at intoxication. Whether there's any truth to that remains to be seen, and if so there could be further implications under Texas dram shop law, but impairment can't be assumed any more than other explanations can.

The whole story will only be uncovered through diligent effort and attention to detail. Will that level of care be taken to ensure the victims get the answers and help they deserve?
