3 Dallas Officers Hurt Working Wrecks

Officers expected to be OK after two separate crashes.

Three Dallas police officers have been hurt while trying to clear two unrelated Interstate 635-area wrecks on a rainy morning.

Police say two officers were injured around 2 a.m. Friday when a tractor-trailer rig jack-knifed and hit two parked squad cars.

Police say both officers were transported to Parkland Memorial Hospital, where one was treated and released. The other remained for observation.

The second accident happened around 2:30 a.m. Friday when a stopped patrol car was hit from behind by another vehicle.

Police say the squad car's gas tank ruptured, leading to a hazardous materials spill. One officer was transported to Parkland for observation.

Names of the three officers weren't immediately released.
