The suspect, Luis Castillo-Garcia (H/m, 36), is charged with DWI- third offense in the 337th State District Court.
 
The officer was transported to an area hospital with what are believed to be non-life-threatening injuries.
 
HPD Vehicular Crimes Division Sergeant G. Lopez and Officer E. Morgado reported:
 
"The officer was working an extra job at a road closure at the above address. The suspect, Castillo-Garcia, was driving a white Chevrolet van southbound at the above address when he struck a white tow truck working a separate crash on the freeway. The Chevrolet van then struck a Houston Fire Department engine truck before striking the officer, who was on foot."
 
Castillo-Garcia was detained at the scene, examined by an HPD DWI Task Force officer and found to show signs of intoxication. He was subsequently arrested and charged in this incident.
