An El Paso police officer has been rushed to an area hospital after a crash in East El Paso. The officer wasn't the only one involved in this chain-reaction crash.
Police officers on the scene say the driver of a pick-up truck rear-ended a police officer who was on a motorcycle. That sent the motorcycle cop into other lanes. Police say, then another driver hit the motorcycle and crashed into a pole.
The driver of the pick-up took off and crashed into a brick wall about a block away.
A Witness on the scene says the pick-up driver was drunk.
Police however, could not confirm if the driver was drunk.
Investigators tell us the officer was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
