A Splendora Officer was under the truck that was stopped searching it. The suspect was cuffed behind his vehicle talking to a deputy who was standing next to one of the patrol cars. Other deputies were searching the truck. A male driver in a Tesla was northbound and never slowed down for the lights ahead. He slammed into a patrol car driving it into the other vehicles. The officer under the truck was dragged a short distance, the suspect was thrown under one of the vehicles, and a deputy standing next to the patrol car who had been talking to the suspect was hit by the mirror on the patrol car possibly breaking his arm. Another Deputy standing in front f the suspect vehicle hit when the truck was pushed forward The Sargeant who was standing between the bridge wall and the vehicles were almost thrown over the wall to a thirty-foot drop was pinned between the patrol unit and concrete wall.  DPS arrested the driver of the Tesla who was uninjured, for DWI.
