FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) - Two officers were involved in a crash after answering a call about a road rage incident where a man pulled out a gun at I-20 at South Hulen.

The crash happened at West Loop 820 South at White Settlement Road Sunday around 3:00 p.m.

The officers were rushed to area hospitals.

Police said both officers were awake and alert.

Police said two officers in the same cruiser were responding to the call, but when they took the exit off the highway, the car crashed into a brick structure in the parking lot of a Wells Fargo at Northbound West Loop 820 South at White Settlement Road.

The officers were entrapped and extracted by the Fort Worth firefighters before they were rushed to two local hospitals where they were said to be receiving precautionary medical treatment.
