DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – An officer with the Dallas Police Department was injured Wednesday morning after his personal transport suddenly broke down during his patrol in the downtown area.

The officer was traveling along Reunion Boulevard, just behind the Hyatt Regency Hotel, around 2:00 a.m. on Wednesday morning, when the front wheel of his three-wheeled vehicle fell off. Authorities have not said what may have caused the wheel to come detached.

The officer tumbled from his vehicle and was hurt. He was treated on the scene and sent home to recover from those injuries.
