HOUSTON (KTRK) -- A suspected drunk driver could face charges after slamming into two Houston Police patrol cars on the North Freeway outbound exit ramp to North Main.

The crash happened early this morning after two patrol cars had pulled someone over for a routine traffic stop. The officers were still in their patrol cars when the driver slammed into both units.

The suspected drunk driver and both officers were not hurt, but a passenger in the suspect's car was taken to the hospital. That person's injuries are unknown.

Charges against the suspected drunk driver are pending.

Police say the car that was initially stopped fled the scene after the crash. It's unknown if that driver will face any charges.
