Lubbock Sheriff's SUV Struck From Behind in Fort Worth


A sheriff's deputy from Lubbock is unharmed after their patrol vehicle was struck from behind by a car early Monday morning in Fort Worth, police say.

It happened before 3:50 a.m. at the intersection of South Main Street and Pennsylvania Avenue.

The driver of the sedan was taken to a hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening. The driver, who has not been identified, was detained and questioned by officers who were investigating whether alcohol was a factor in the crash.
