MIDLAND, TX (KWES) - The Midland Police Officer Association has created an account with the Community National Bank for an injured Midland Police Officer.

Officer Jacob Churchwell was in a car accident Wednesday afternoon on the southbound lanes of Loop 250 between Highway 80 and Interstate 20.

The City of Midland said an investigation revealed Officer Churchwell was chasing a black motorcycle that was weaving in and out of traffic at a high rate of speed. Churchwell lost control of his patrol unit and slid into a median toward the service road.

Churchwell is in the hospital in stable but serious condition.
