Texas Department of Public Safety officials report that a tractor-trailer crashed into the Brenham, Texas, DPS office. Sources state at least a dozen people were injured.

Texas DPS Southeast Region spokesman Lt. Craig Cummings told Breitbart Texas that there are multiple serious injuries after an 18-wheeler crashed through the front door of the DPS drivers license office in Brenham on Friday shortly before noon. While the truck appeared to drive straight through the front door, DPS officials are not yet saying if the crash was intentional.

UPDATE: Montgomery County Judge Mark Keough reported that the driver of the 18-wheeler had need denied a commercial driver’s license on Thursday. He posted on Facebook:

I have been briefed and this incident was intentional and done by the suspect who was denied a CDL yesterday. He returned today with intent to harm.


Photos posted on X by KPRC NBC2′ Gage Goulding show that the heavily loaded tractor-trailer appeared to have smashed through the main door of the Texas Driver License office located on Highway 290 in Brenham.

Fox 26 Houston’s Greg Groogan posted on social media that there were “double figure casualties being reported.”

Sources told Fox26 that the tractor-trailer had been reported stolen and police were pursuing the truck before it crashed into the building. Video from overhead shows the truck appeared to make a sharp right turn and crash straight into the center doors of the building. It then appeared to have backed out until a sheriff’s office vehicle crashed into the back left wheels of the trailer. It is not known if that disabled the vehicle, preventing the driver from fleeing.

KBTX Bryan-College Station reports at least 3 people are reported to be in critical condition and four others are “walking around.”

Houston Air Watch reported “multiple medical helicopters (possibly) responding to truck crash at DPS Brenham office.” The flights include at least one aircraft from Houston-based Life Flight.
