HOUSTON — A Texas ambulance was attacked last week when a large chunk of concrete was thrown through its windshield.
Cypress Creek EMS providers were driving the ambulance on a Houston roadway when the concrete crashed through the window, according to Harris County Sheriff’s Office Major Mike Lee.
Thursday night, first responders from @CCEMSTX were the target of attack on 1960 & Ella. Photos show the large chunk of concrete thrown in their windshield as they were driving.

“Fortunately, injuries were minor, and charges are pending on a possible suspect,” Lee tweeted, adding the hashtag “#WeHaveYourBack.”
Cypress Creek EMS serves a population of about 560,000 people in Harris County and was the first ground EMS to perform a blood transfusion on a trauma patient, according to its Facebook page.
"Great police work @HCSOTexas [the Harris County Sheriff's Office]," the service replied on Twitter. "Clearly this senseless act could have had much worse results, so we hope the perpetrator is prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law."
The potential suspect in the attack was not identified.
