The officers are expected to be OK.

The incident happened when police arrived at the scene of a reported domestic disturbance and barricaded the street around the scene. That’s when a driver plowed into a patrol car, injuring the officer inside. The marked car then hit three other officers, who were believed to be standing nearby.

Police said the car that caused the accident was not connected to the disturbance call. That driver fled the scene but was eventually captured by police.

The officers involved were taken to Parkland Memorial Hospital and were listed in stable condition, police said.

Meanwhile, police found that a man had been shot in the leg at the domestic disturbance scene — which, again, is why they were there in the first place. The victim was rushed to a nearby hospital in stable condition. The suspect from the original shooting call was also taken into custody.

Per NBC 5, the incident took place in the 3100 block of Community Drive near Dallas Love Field.
