A Central Texas police officer is recovering from injuries he suffered in a two-car accident while on-duty.
The accident happened Friday night in Thorndale, in western Milam County.

Police say they have identified the alleged drag racers and charges are pending. But, so far, no arrests have been made.
The officer's identity is currently being withheld.
