Three people including a Bangs police officer are recovering from the injuries they sustained in a two-vehicle accident Monday afternoon, Bangs Police Chief Troy Grusendorf said Tuesday morning.
The Department of Public Safety is investigating the accident because it involved a police car, Grusendorf said.
Margie Bodine, a passenger in her car that was hit broadside by a Bangs police car, is in satisfactory condition at Shannon Medical Center in San Angelo, a hospital spokeswoman said.
Walter Bodine, the car's driver, was taken to Brownwood Regional Medical Center, where a report on his condition was not immediately available. The injured officer, Perry Kelley, was released from BRMC Monday, Grusendorf said.
The accident happened on U.S. Highway 67/84 just before 3 p.m. According to officials on the scene, the car Walter Bodine was driving entered the highway from the TexasBank parking lot and was struck by the police car.
