Officers arrived and found two vehicles involved in the collision. Firefighters from the North Richland Hills Fire-Rescue were dispatched to the scene and transported three people to hospitals in the area.
Katekaru reported that one person brought to the hospital suffered from life-threatening injuries.
During the investigation, police found that one adult male driver was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence and booked into the North Richland Hills Joint Detention Center.
