Officer Injured in Alleged DWI Accident on Lamar Boulevard in Arlington, TX

Arlington, TX -- December 4, 2022, an officer was injured due to an accident where an allegedly intoxicated driver hit their patrol car.

Investigators said that the crash happened at around 2:49 a.m. off the corner of Lamar Boulevard and Lincoln Street. It appears that a 25-year-old police officer was in a marked SUV with lights on. They were diverting traffic following a previous crash (there's actually another blog on that crash, which injured a Ms. Sandra Barrera).

While the officer blocked lanes with emergency lights on, it appears a Kia Spectra crashed into the side of the cruiser, causing the officer to sustain incapacitating injuries.

Police recommended DWI charges against the driver of the Kia, but further information has yet to be concerned. Frankly, it wouldn't be surprising if this, too, was a drunk driving wreck. The previous crash I mentioned above also had a driver who was believed to be intoxicated. Two drivers on the same night at the same intersection. What are the chances? Well, they're actually pretty high.

Around 2:00 a.m., there are estimates that between a fifth and a quarter of drivers on the road are some level of intoxicated. This is because bars, restaurants, and clubs close down and send people out onto the roads to get themselves and others hurt. This leads to drivers waking up in jail, bars looking at liability under dram shop law and a visit from TABC agents for over-serving those drivers, and families either in ICU waiting rooms or making funeral arrangements.

It's a tragic reality that alcohol is a serious problem in Texas and in DFW especially. That's why I talk about it so much on this blog. Making people aware leads them to learning about their rights, and exercising those rights helps them to join the fight to make our communities safer for everyone.
