HOUSTON – Three drivers were arrested after they were involved in a crash involving a Houston Police vehicle and a Houston Fire truck early Saturday, according to police.

It happened on U.S. 59 inbound and Buffalo Speedway at around 1 a.m.

Police said a marked patrol unit was driving on the Southwest Freeway feeder road when it was sideswiped by two vehicles--a black-colored Cadillac and a Toyota Camry.

The police vehicle only suffered minor damage to a rear tire.

As HPD and an HFD engine arrived at the crash scene, police said a red sedan struck the HFD while blocking the roadway.

Officers at the scene arrested all three drivers on suspicion of DWI.

No one was injured as a result of the three crashes.
