More details have been released after a man was seriously injured and a deputy constable was hurt in a crash in northeast Harris County, forcing officials to temporarily shut down portions of FM 1960.

The two-vehicle wreck happened about 3:20 a.m. Wednesday on westbound FM 1960 near Kenswick, according to the Harris County Precinct 4 Constable’s Office.
Officials said a deputy was traveling on FM 1960 when the driver in front of him suddenly made a U-turn and their cars collided. The deputy was not on an emergency call.

The deputy broke his wrist and was taken to Memorial Hermann Northeast Hospital in Humble, where he was treated and released.

The other driver was first taken to Memorial Hermann Northeast Hospital but was then flown by LifeFlight medical helicopter to Memorial Hermann-The Texas Medical Center. Derails of his injuries were not released but officials said he was in serious condition.

The wreck forced officials to block all westbound lanes on FM 1960 while crews cleared the scene. The lanes later reopened.

Deputies are investigating the crash.
