A car ran into a Dallas police car overnight on northbound Interstate 35E near Marsalis Avenue, close to the Dallas Zoo.

The pickup truck hit the police car from behind as the officer was working construction detail. No one was hurt but both vehicles had to be towed from the scene.

State law requires drivers to move over or slow down when approaching fire trucks, police cars or tow truck drivers with emergency lights flashing.

There’s no word on if the driver will face charges.
