Serious Accident Involving Texas DPS Trooper in Navarro County By Rocky Walton on February 01, 2023

On Tuesday morning, a Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) trooper was involved in a crash while investigating another incident in Navarro County. 


The weather conditions in North Texas were reported to be icy, leading authorities to believe that the incident was weather-related. Trooper Curtis Putz was hit by a vehicle and was pinned underneath. He was rushed to a hospital in Dallas for treatment and is currently in serious condition. The DPS has requested thoughts and prayers for Putz and his family. The investigation into the crash is still ongoing and no further details have been released. It is crucial that we remember the bravery and sacrifice of our law enforcement officers, who put themselves in harm's way to keep our communities safe. In times like these, we must come together to support our troopers and their families and remind them of the gratitude we have for their service and dedication to protecting the public. We hope for a swift and full recovery for Trooper Putz and extend our best wishes to him and his family during this difficult time. Putz’ family has set up a GoFundMe for anyone willing to donate in their time of need. 

Why Legal Representation May Be Necessary in a Negligence Injury Case

In a case like this where a law enforcement officer is injured while on duty, it is possible that a lawyer may be needed to help navigate any potential legal issues that may arise. For example, if the accident was caused by the driver of the vehicle that hit the trooper, the trooper or their family may need legal representation to pursue compensation for their injuries, medical expenses, and other damages. In any case, it is important to have a knowledgeable and experienced lawyer on your side to guide you through the legal process, protect your rights and compensate you for your personal injuries.
