An Orange Police Officer driving an unmarked police truck but with emergency lights on, was providing assistance to a TxDOT Crew when he was struck from behind.
The accident happened around 8am Wednesday on the eastbound side of Interstate 10 near the FM1442 overpass.
The pickup was struck from behind by a Honda, driven by a 31 year old man from Beaumont. When it stopped it was facing the other way. The driver of the Honda was conscious and alert but was taken to the hospital for treatment. The officer, Jason Laughlin, also did not receive any reported serious injuries and was treated at the scene.
