Just before midnight last night, a driver failed to see a road construction crew that was working on I-635 just west of Midway Road. At the scene of the construction, there were flares, flashing lights and cones surrounding the area. The driver drove through the construction zone and crashed into an empty police car. No one was hurt in the accident.

At the time of the accident, it was raining heavily and the streets were slippery, which could have contributed to the accident. The police are still investigating the crash.

It’s critical that drivers be alert near construction areas. When driving through construction zones, slow down and proceed with caution. Tragically, road construction workers are killed every year in construction zones.
