Off-Duty Officer Hits Squad Car http://www.myfoxdfw.com/dpp/news/officer-injured-in-collision Published : Friday, 15 Jan 2010, 6:39 AM CST By Alice Wolke Kalthoff, MYFOXDFW.COM PLANO - An off-duty Plano police officer driving a pickup truck crashed into a squad car early Friday morning. And they weren't the only two officers from that city involved in crashes overnight. The collision between the two officers happened on the Central Express way at Legacy Drive around 4 a.m. The Plano police officer in the squad car was traveling north on the service road of I-75. The off-duty officer in the pickup truck was headed east on Legacy Drive when he apparently ran the red light and hit the squad car in the front driver's side quarter panel. Both drivers were taken to the hospital. The Plano Police public information officer has not said if the off-duty officer may have been under the influence of alcohol or drugs. As the police department investigates the accident, the following roads remained closed as of 6:30 a.m.: the northbound I-75 service road, plus both eastbound and wesbound Legacy Drive. The Plano Police Department said this was the second accident of the night involving one of its police officers. Just after midnight, a different officer responding to a call hit a patch of water and hydroplaned, spinning his squad car into a tree. That officer was not injured.
