A house exploded in Hurst, Texas around 1 p.m. on Saturday, April 7 after the driver of a car lost control and hit a gas line.

The Hurst Fire Department said the car’s brakes failed.

The driver was not seriously hurt but was arrested for not having a valid driver’s license, according to a Hurst city spokesperson.

A mother, father and son inside the home were taken to area hospitals.

Two police officers outside the house were also injured when the house exploded. Both of their injuries were said to be minor but one of the officers went to the hospital to be checked out.

After the explosion, Hurst police said officers could hear screaming in the house and “breached a back door to rescue the three occupants in the wreckage of the home.”
