JACK COUNTY, Tx (KAUZ) -

DPS troopers say a Jack County deputy is in critical but stable condition Sunday night after being hit by a car while investigating a crash.

According to the Jack County Sheriff's Facebook page that deputy has multiple fractures and will need surgery.

Sergeant Dan Buesing said it all happened around 7 a.m. west of Jacksboro on US 380 and US 281 when the deputy and a tow truck driver were assisting a DPS trooper.

He said during that time a driver of a car slid through the intersection into a ditch, hitting both the deputy and the wrecker driver.

The deputy was taken to a hospital in Fort Worth.

The wrecker driver was taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries and the driver of the car with minor injuries.

The DPS trooper was not hit.

Sgt. Buesing said heavy fog and wet road conditions played a role in the crash and adds no charges have been filed.

The crash is still under investigation.
