HARRIS COUNTY, Texas -- A Harris County deputy was rear-ended by a speeding driver early Sunday.

Around 2 a.m., a deputy with the Harris County Sheriff's Office was traveling near the 400 block of Carby Road and Airline Drive when his cruiser was struck by another car.

The deputy said he looked in his rearview mirror when he noticed a car traveling at a high rate of speed and attempted to steer away from it. That is when he was struck from behind. The impact caused the deputy to be temporarily trapped in his car.

The suspect lost control and ran into a ditch.

Deputies said the officer was able to see the suspect get out of his car and flee the scene.

According to officials, HSCO and Houston police set up a perimeter and used the K-9 unit to locate the suspect.
