DALLAS - A Dallas Area Rapid Transit officer was injured while on duty Monday night.
Officer Justin Ellis was seriously injured when a driver ran a red light and hit his motorcycle on Scyene Road near Fair Park in Dallas.
DART said Ellis suffered several broken bones and internal injuries. According to a Facebook post by the Rockwall Police Department, he is in now intensive care after several surgeries.
“We ask that you keep Officer Ellis and his family in your thoughts and prayers as he recovers. This will be a long and tedious process for Officer Ellis and his family but we want them to know that we are here to help in any way needed,” the department said.
Ellis and his family are close friends with several Rockwall police officers.
