By  | 

About 1:30 p.m Sunday afternoon, a Department of Public Safety trooper was rear-ended. The trooper and a 19-year-old female driver were both traveling southbound on Highway 6.

Details of what led to the accident are unknown, but the trooper was hit. The accident happened at the intersection of Highway 6 South and Rock Bottom Road.

Highway 6 was closed for two hours as emergency officials worked to clear the scene.

Brazos County Sheriff's Deputies and Texas Department of Transportation officials re-routed traffic through F.M. 2154. Both the trooper and the 19-year-old driver were transported by ambulance to College Station Medical Center with what are believed to be non-life threatening injuries. Their identities are not known.

An hour after emergency officials were called out to the accident involving a DPS trooper, they received another call about another accident on Highway 6. It occurred at the intersection of Highway 6 and F.M.2154.

Officials say it was a minor accident involving a car and a motorcycle.
The driver and rider both declined transportation to area hospitals.
