SAPD Officer Hurt in Chain Reaction Crash

A San Antonio Police Officer suffered multiple broken bones when he was pinned against a concrete lane divider while he was writing a traffic ticket on Loop 410 near Harry Wurzbach, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.

Officer Carlos Ortiz says the motorist pulled off to the left shoulder rather than the right when the officer pulled him over, and several vehicles than were involved in the wreck.

"A truck actually hits the vehicle where the officer was outside writing a citation, pinning him against the concrete barrier," Ortiz said.

He says that then involved several other cars.

"Because of that accident and because of what was going on, we believe that other vehicles then collided, causing a chain reaction."

The accident closed the busy highway from Starcrest to Harry Wurzbach for several hours.

The officer was rushed to SAAMC where he is listed in stable condition.
