A 19-year-old man was arrested Tuesday after allegedly crashing a pickup into a Dallas County Sheriff’s Department squad car and a second car on Interstate 20, leaving two deputies and another person injured, the department said.
Joevony Vasquez, 19, is charged with three counts of accident involving injury in connection with the incident, in which the red Ford F-150 pickup hit the deputies’ squad car shortly after 9:30 a.m. while they were working a traffic stop on westbound I-20 near Mountain Creek Parkway. The pickup fled and hit another car in the process, the department said.
The deputies were halfway in their car when it was hit. Both deputies and the driver of the second car were taken to the hospital in stable condition.
