The Denton Police Department is investigating a major accident involving one of their officers that occurred earlier this morning along I35.

At 8:42AM, Denton PD and FD/EMS responded to multiple reports of a major accident in the southbound lanes of I35 near Highway 380 in west Denton. The crash reportedly involved at least three vehicles, including a Denton police car.

Investigators say an SUV was traveling southbound on I35 when it lost control and struck a police car, pushing it into the barrier.

All southbound lanes of I35 were closed while police investigated the scene, but have since been reopened.
