More than a dozen people reportedly were injured Friday after a commercial motor vehicle crashed into a Department of Public Safety office in Brenham, Texas.

Texas DPS said the crash occurred Friday morning when a law enforcement agency pursued an 18-wheeler. The driver is in custody.

“We can confirm that the Texas Rangers are investigating this incident. A suspect has been arrested, and there is no further threat to the community,” DPS officials said.


A Washington County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson told Fox News that police are investigating reports that the truck was stolen in nearby Chappell Hill. The driver went to the DPS office on purpose because their commercial driver’s license was denied there on Thursday.

At least 16 people are reported to be injured, with three in critical condition. “We believe this is a criminal act,” County Sheriff Otto Hanak told reporters.
