A woman is expected to survive after she was hit by two vehicles Monday, Aug. 19, while fleeing officers.

This happened in the 8200 block of the Gulf Freeway service road in southeast Houston. 

Houston police said shortly before 2 p.m. officers were conducting an undercover operation because they had received citizen complaints of prostitution.

Cmdr. James Dale, of the Houston Police Department, said the undercover officers were trying to detain the female suspect in a nearby parking lot.

The woman may have felt she was dealing with police so she decided to flee the vehicle, crossing the Gulf Freeway service road and being hit by two vehicles in the process.

She was struck by two vehicles and rushed to the hospital. 

Police said she is expected to survive and they have not released her identity but said she was born in 1997.
