Man Dies After Being Hit By Police Car
The Dallas County Medical Examiner’s office says the man whose jeep was rear-ended by a Dallas Police car this morning has died. 59-year old Terry Glover died this morning during surgery. A little after 2 a.m. the man’s Jeep was stopped right in the middle of South Polk, a few blocks south of Camp Wisdom Road. The Dallas squad car, with two officers inside, was on its way to a call when it slammed into the back of the SUV whose driver was taken to Methodist Central Hospital in Dallas.
Assistant Chief Tom Lawrence says the officer behind the wheel is now on desk duty, pending the outcome of an investigation. Lawrence admits after seeing the dashcam video, it was obvious there was a disabled vehicle in the road.
The two officers were not seriously injured.
