    A Fort Worth police officer responding to a Priority-1 call with lights and sirens T-boned a small SUV early Tuesday morning.  The crash took place near the Loop 820 service road and Brentwood Stair.  Four people in the SUV and the police officer were all hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries.

    Acting on several complaints, the SPCA of Texas and Dallas County Constables will seize hundreds of animals, most of which are livestock, from a location in Dallas County Tuesday. A majority of the animals are cruelly confined, the SPCA said. The animals' conditions vary. The living conditions of the majority of the animals are deplorable and are considered cruel confinement. Certain types of animals are regulated by state and federal law, which mandates that each type of animal requires clean living conditions of suitable size. After several attempts to help the animals' owner come into compliance with code, the SPCA of Texas agreed with the Dallas County Constable that immediate action was needed to remove these animals from conditions including cruel confinement, lack of appropriate shelter and lack of/contamination of food and water. To maintain the integrity of the investigation, the SPCA does not divulge the location of the seizure until it has taken place.

    A Tarrant County mother, Keashia Matthews, may face murder charges in connection with the death of her infant son. The Tarrant County medical examiner has ruled that Darrell "Trey" Singleton died of a heat stroke and ruled his death a homicide. Matthews eventually confessed to police that she left her boy in her car while she worked -- stepping outside frequently to check on him.  At the end of the day, she said he didn't look right, picked up her other two children from school and took the boy to the hospital, where he died. Matthews is already charged with injury to a child.

    The driver of a Toyota sedan was forced off the road and crashed into the back of a parked 18-wheeler along Interstate 635 early Tuesday morning, police said.  The driver slammed on his breaks, but struck the big-rig at about 30 mph near the Josey exit.  Neither the driver of the Toyota or the big-rig were injured in the collision.

    A Tyler teenager accused of fatally stabbing his teacher, Todd Henry, at John Tyler High School last month, has waived two detention hearings.  The 16-year-old will appear in a Smith County court on Nov. 2.  The teen's attorney said his client was diagnosed with schizophrenia at age 14 and is mentally disabled.
