LIMESTONE COUNTY, TX (KXXV) -

A man was seriously hurt and flown to a hospital after crashing into an unoccupied DPS Trooper vehicle in Limestone County.

A DPS Trooper was on U.S. 84 near FM 2681 around 1:45 a.m. Sunday investigating a minor crash. 

A tow truck was in the process of loading the crashed car as the Trooper spoke to the driver on the shoulder of the highway away from his vehicle.

Troopers said a Chevrolet pick-up truck traveling on US 84 hit the DPS trooper vehicle from the back, which was unoccupied, and crashed it into the tow truck.

The trooper, other driver and tow truck driver were not hurt.

The male driver who hit the DPS vehicle was seriously injured and flown to Baylor Scott & White Medical Center-Hillcrest. 

Officials said alcohol could have played a part in the crash of the truck hitting the DPS unit.

The accident is under investigation.

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks with Russian President Vladimir Putin during a press conference after their meeting at the Presidential Palace in Helsinki, Finland, Monday, July 16, 2018.

    Standing alongside Putin, Trump steered clear of any confrontation with the Russian, going so far as to question American intelligence and last week's federal indictments that accused 12 Russians of hacking into Democratic email accounts to hurt Hillary Clinton in 2016.
