HARRIS COUNTY, Texas— The Harris County Sheriff's Office is investigating a vehicular crash that sent a Precinct 5 constable deputy to the hospital and a woman to jail Friday morning in north Houston.
Officers responded to the incident at the intersection of Kuykendahl and Louetta around 4 a.m.
Investigators said the woman was traveling northbound on Kuykendahl and an off-duty constable deputy was going westbound on Louetta when she ran a red light and crashed into the victim's vehicle.
Upon arrival, deputies were alarmed by the woman's behavior and conducted a search of her car. During the search, deputies discovered an undisclosed amount of narcotics and marijuana. The woman was immediately taken into custody.
The deputy — later identified as Deputy Maxey — was knocked unconscious and taken to the hospital when first responders arrived. The Harris County Pct. 5 Constable's Office confirmed Maxey was released from the hospital hours later.
