LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A pedestrian was injured Saturday night when a passenger car driving southbound in the 4700 block of Avenue Q was unable to stop in time, but that's just the beginning of the story.

Police say 50-year-old Fransisco Fierro failed to yield as he was crossing east on Avenue Q and Tara Roderick, 25, traveling with two children in her Toyota Corolla, could not stop in time.

Fierro was taken to the hospital with serious injuries but officials are now reporting that he is in satisfactory condition. There were no other reported injuries.

Lubbock police were called to the scene around 12:30 p.m. They put their lights on and blocked the street. Then, while accident investigators were surveying the scene, another vehicle, driven by 26-year-old Anthony Perez, crashed into the back of their patrol car.

Perez was arrested for driving while intoxicated. His 19-year-old passenger was released to his mother.
