HOUSTON — A Texas man accused of driving while intoxicated was killed Sunday when the patrol car he was riding in was hit by another suspected drunken driver on a Houston freeway, authorities said.
One deputy suffered a broken foot, numerous bruises and cuts, while the other deputy suffered a concussion, KTRK reported.
Njogu was charged with felony murder and intoxication assault on a peace officer, the television station reported.
"It wasn't like a wrong turn," Sean Teare, of the Harris County District Attorney's Office, told KPRC. "The information we have -- this guy was going for quite a while the wrong way on the Westpark Tollway before he hit these three people."
Authorities said Njogu's blood alcohol content was .23, nearly three times the legal limit in Texas.
