La Marque PD Receiving International Recognition for Dramatic Train Rescue

La Marque Police Department received international media attention over the weekend for quick action and dramatic body cam video of a car accident involving a train. As officers responded to the crash, the train started moving and dragged the vehicle about 100 feet before stopping again. The man in the woman inside the vehicle were taken to area hospitals. 


Thank you K9 Officer Best, the entire La Marque Police Department and La Marque Fire and Rescue for your quick thinking and dedication. We are proud of you!
