The man Wichita Falls Police say was the cause of a three-vehicle accident that included a police unit is behind bars and charged with a DWI.
A witness told police, 27-year-old Christian Parker, the man driving a 2005 Toyota Highlander, ran a red light, causing a Wichita Falls Police Unit to hit it.
That in turn according to police caused the Highlander to hit a third vehicle that was waiting to turn into the mall parking lot.
As first responders worked to get the driver of the Highlander, out, they smelled alcohol and found keystone beer inside the vehicle.
Officers performed an eye test at the hospital which they say he failed.
Once he was released from the hospital he was transported to jail and charged with DWI and 5 additional warrants.
The police officer was treated for minor injuries and is expected to make a full recovery.
