A Precinct 4 deputy constable was involved in a serious accident in northwest Harris County overnight. He's now in the hospital. Police aren't saying exactly how this happened. What we do know is that a Precinct 4 deputy constable was traveling northbound on Ella. Authorities say he was rushing to assist another officer with his lights and sirens operating.

For some reason, the vehicle went over the center median into oncoming traffic, and hit a pickup head on.

The deputy was transported to Hermann Hospital and is listed as stable. The person driving the truck was not hurt.

Although there's been no official word, part of the investigation will look into how fast the officer was traveling or if his attention was diverted.
