A Bexar County sheriff’s deputy was hospitalized Saturday night after his patrol car was struck by an intoxicated driver.
According to KSAT, the accident occurred Saturday night as the deputy was assisting a driver who had been injured in a single-vehicle accident. The patrol car was parked on the side of the roadway when the crash happened.
Preliminary reports say Deputy Fernando Luna had just gotten back into his patrol vehicle when it was rear-ended by 31-year-old Anthony Frias.
Fortunately, Deputy Luna’s injuries are not considered life-threatening, and he expected to recover soon. Frias was charged with DWI with a bond set at $1,000. His charges may be updated pending additional investigation.
