SAN ANTONIO - A police officer was lucky to escape without serious injury after a truck slammed into his patrol car on the East Side.
The accident happened shortly after 10 pm Saturday night at the intersection of Burnet and North New Braunfels. Investigators aren't sure if the man ran the stop sign on Burnet – or if he just didn't see the officer's car.
The officer was taken to the hospital as a precaution.
The truck driver was given a field sobriety test after open containers were found in the vehicle. He now faces DWI charges.
