Corpus Christi Officer Accidentally Backs Over Backup Officer


The Corpus Christi Police Department is investigating a traffic accident that left one of their own injured. This happened late yesterday (Thursday) on Highway 77 between Calallen and Robstown.

The officer had called for backup after he spotted a suspicious vehicle on the side of the highway. The vehicle turned out to be abandoned, so the officer canceled the backup call.

He didn't realize that a backup officer had arrived and was standing behind his unit. The first officer put his unit in reverse and hit the backup officer. That officer was taken to the hospital with a broken leg.
