A Plano police officer fatally shot a woman who reportedly stabbed him and another driver after a car crash Thursday morning.

Police said the officer was responding to a collision about 7 a.m. at Legacy Drive and Independence Parkway, KXAS-TV (NBC5) reported.

When the officer approached one of the cars, the woman lunged at him and stabbed him with a knife, police told the station.

The officer backed away and the woman stabbed the driver of the other car, The Associated Press reported.

The officer then pulled out his gun and fatally shot the woman, police said.

The officer and second motorist were hospitalized with injuries that were not considered life-threatening, police said.

Authorities have not released the names of anyone involved in the incident.

Video from a news helicopter showed a police SUV parked alongside two sedans with collision damage.
