Drinking, driving and smashing a police car, never a good mix; not so lucky!
At 4 a.m. last Saturday morning a couple of Sugar Land Police officers were working along the shoulder of US 59 near University Boulevard. As they worked, an approaching Honda sedan crashed into one of the police cars and careened out of control coming to a stop some 150 feet south of where it impacted the patrol unit.
Sugar Land Police spokesman Doug Adolph said the Honda was occupied by the driver and three passengers. One passenger was ejected and taken by Life Flight to Hermann Memorial in Houston with head, neck, and back injuries. No other injuries were reported. Adolph said the southbound lanes of 59 were closed from the time of the accident until about 10:30 Saturday morning.
As a result of the accident, Michael D Maun, 25, was arrested and charged with intoxication assault.
