Waco, Tx — Waco Police Department is investigating a Sunday night wreck, as well as a shooting that seem to be linked.
According to Sergeant W.P. Swanton of Waco PD, the accident happened around 10 p.m. Sunday at 17th Street and Waco Drive. Police responded to the wreck, to discover a Mitsubishi Gallant had collided with a Chevy HHR. Police say the HHR rolled several times but the occupants weren’t seriously injured. The HHR was also hit by a third vehicle, which left the scene of the accident.
Swanton says the driver of the Gallant was not at the scene of the wreck, but later was found at Hillcrest Baptist Medical Center with a gunshot wound to his lower torso area. The man was immediately taken into surgery. His condition is unknown as of Tuesday morning.
Swanton says the investigation is on-going.
