To avoid getting hit, an officer standing in front of that police cruiser jumped over the wall along the highway and fell down onto the frontage road below, police said.

The pickup then crashed into a vehicle that was involved in the original accident. Four people, including a second Castle Hills police officer, were near that vehicle when the pickup plowed into it.

A woman standing near the vehicle that was struck by the pickup was also hit by the pickup and died as a result of her injuries, according to police.

Police say two men and the second officer either jumped over the wall or were struck by the pickup and thrown over the wall and down onto the frontage road.

All four were taken to University Hospital with the two officers in serious condition and the other two men in critical, according to police.

The driver of the pickup is facing multiple charges and results of the driver's sobriety test are pending, police said.
