It happened in the eastbound lanes of the North Loop. At first, the driver of a red Dodge Stratus was able to avoid hitting two cars, but plowed into two police units directing traffic away from the icy roads.

Investigators claim the driver seemed to be trying to go between the patrol cars.

The driver was apprehended. No one was hurt in the incident.
