HOUSTON A woman running across the North Freeway and dancing in the HOV lane caused an officer to crash his patrol car early Tuesday, according to Houston police.

It happened just before midnight along Interstate 45 near New Haven.

Police were trying to shut down the freeway s southbound lanes so they could take the woman into custody when they said she darted onto the northbound frontage road. An HPD unit swerved to avoid hitting her and crashed into a guardrail.

There were no injuries, and the woman was taken into custody.

HPD said the woman will face charges.
