NEW ORLEANS - The New Orleans Police Department says three officers were injured after being hit by a vehicle while on the scene of an accident Sunday morning.

The accident happened at about 3 a.m. on I-10 eastbound near the Esplanade Avenue exit. 

An NOPD spokesman said 34-year-old Percy R. Smith was driving by the accident when he struck the three officers.

The officers were transported to the hospital with minor injuries.

A spokesman said Smith is charged with driving while intoxicated, disregarding an officer's signal and hit-and-run.

The investigation into the accident is ongoing.
