DWI Suspect Hits Marked Squad Car waiting for Tow Truck (TX)


Recommended Posts

A 24-year-old woman suspected of driving while intoxicated struck a parked squad car early Saturday morning in Old East Dallas, police say.

Officers were parked about 2:15 a.m. in the 5800 block of East Grand Avenue, near Samuell-Grand Park, when Melissa Mejia hit the marked car from behind, police said.

Mejia was booked into the Dallas County jail and faces a charge of driving while intoxicated. Jail records show Mejia also had warrants for traffic-related offenses from the Sunnyvale Police Department. 

The officers had been waiting on a tow truck to move another vehicle away and had the emergency lights on.
