2 FWPD Officers injured during pursuit on west side of Fort Worth


Two officers were injured Sunday afternoon in a traffic crash as they responded to a road rage call, according to police. At about 3 p.m., the officers answered a call of a road rage incident involving a man displaying a gun at Interstate 20 near Hulen Street. The chase went from I-20 to Loop 820 in west Fort Worth.

A police unit was en route to the chase, exited off Loop 820 and the officer lost control of the vehicle, police said. The car collided with the brick wall of a Wells Fargo drive-through lane at Loop 820 and White Settlement Road.

Officers were trapped in the vehicle for several minutes before firefighters extracted them, police said. The officers were receiving precautionary medical treatment.

The suspect’s vehicle was disabled after it crashed in a nearby neighborhood, police said. Officers searched the neighborhood just west of Loop 820 in the Maryville Lane area. The suspect was captured and a gun was recovered at the scene.
