No Surprise That Houston Cop Is Hit By Two Separate Drunk Drivers

Houston Police officer Lloyd Morrison was hit by two separate drunk drivers Saturday morning while stopped to address a traffic accident. This happened at 3:30 AM on I-45.

Here’s the Houston Chronicle story.   

Above–Houston’s highways are like the Wild West in the modern day.

The first drunk driver clipped the officer’s car. Then, another drunk driver hit the car and caused officer Morrison to be pinned against a fire truck. Officer Morrison is in critical condition, but appears to have a hopeful prognosis.

I often have to drive on Highway 290 around midnight on Friday and Saturday evenings. I’d say I see a driver who seems drunk at least half the time. I’ve called 911 at least three times about swerving drivers.

I hope this incident leads to more enforcement on our roads by both HPD and the Harris County Sheriff.

Our highways are full of drunks and crazies. Law-abiding motorists need help.
