SAN ANTONIO (AP) — A San Antonio police officer is hospitalized after a pickup truck hit him as he worked an accident scene on Interstate 410 on the northwest side of the city.
Police reports show Officer Jonathan Esquivel was placing traffic cones to protect an officer working the accident scene when he was hit Sunday night. According to the reports, the driver of the truck had taken his eyes off the rode briefly and hit the 28-year-old officer when he swerved to avoid hitting the stopped vehicles.
The truck's driver was not charged. Police spokeswoman Sandy Gutierrez says Esquivel was in critical but stable condition in University Hospital on Monday.
