Injuries Reported in Police Car Accident on Old Spanish Trail in Houston, TX

Houston, TX -- January 1, 2023, at least one person was injured due to an accident on Old Spanish Trail involving a police cruiser.

Initial details put the crash scene in the area of Old Spanish Trail and Allegheny Street. At around 11:00 p.m., it appears that a car crashed into a police cruiser which was responding to a call but did not have its emergency lights on. This then resulted in a collision with a minivan.

Reports confirmed there were multiple complaints of injury, but only one person was confirmed to have been taken to a hospital with "minor injuries". The exact cause of the crash remains unconfirmed.

One thing I hope when reading these reports is that the "minor" injuries are indeed minor. I also hope not confirming that others were taken to the hospital is a sign they're okay. Frankly, though, it's still prudent for people to see a doctor even with slight pain after a crash.

For example, I helped a man not long ago who had some back pain after a crash. Days after being sent home, though, the pain became crippling. The back pain ended up being a ruptured disk in his spine, which resulted in a surgery and months of recovery and fighting with the insurance company. I wouldn't wish that on anyone, of course, but folks would be wise not to take chances when it comes to their health.
