Breaking news you CAN get elsewhere (cont'd)

The Chron.com Froot Loop bureau checks in again with the following coverage of the local television news beat this morning:

Two HPD officers were injured while trying to avoid a collision with a suspected drunk driver, according to televised reports this morning by KTRK (Channel 13).

The station gave this account. The cruiser was traveling on Westpark near Walnut Bend around 1 a.m. when another driver made a sudden left-hand turn. The officer swerved to avoid the car and crashed into the side of road.

The driver hurt his ankle, which may be broken, and the officer riding in the passenger seat injured his knees. Both were taken to the hospital.

The driver of the other vehicle failed a field sobriety test and was arrested.

The KTRK-13 story is available here.

What newspaper needs a robust city desk to cover local news, when all it takes is a television and some guy who can type while eating his Froot Loops in the morning?

UPDATE: There's more Froot Loop coverage posted:

A third person has been killed this week after trying to cross a Houston freeway and being hit by a vehicle, according to a report this morning by KTRK (Channel 13).

Police gave reporters this account: Just after 6 a.m. today, a homeless man darted into the eastbound lanes of the North Loop, just before the Yale exit, where he was hit by an SUV.

The driver of that SUV was apparently a nurse, who stopped and attempted CPR on the victim until paramedics arrived. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The KTRK-13 story is available here.
