DPS Trooper Struck "At Full Speed" at I-35W Rest Stop near Flower Mound, TX
I just heard a few minutes ago that an officer (possibly a DPS trooper) was struck "at full speed" by a Lexus at a rest stop on I-35W possibly near Flower Mound, TX. Both the trooper and the driver of the pickup he stopped had leg injuries.
CareFlite was put on standby then disregarded, so hopefully it's not too bad. A Denton County Sheriff's Deputy was calling for DPS supervisors other and Denton County Sheriff Deputies. Medics (believed to be from Flower Mound) responded and two were enroute to the hospital, last I heard.
We may have to wait till tomorrow to find out how serious it was and exactly who it was.
Finally Found a TV Report on the Trooper!!!
I finally found a video report of the Trooper's condition - the ONLY Report I could find. I even called the DPS Public Info office, but it was closed for the holidays.

Trooper expected to survive, with some broken bones... But as we all know, some broken bones are career-ending. I hope he recovers. :(
