Fares Sabawi San Antonio Express-News SAN ANTONIO, Texas — Two Castle Hills police officers who were struck by a pickup while responding to a traffic accident early Sunday morning are expected to make a full recovery, Chief Johnny Siemens said Monday. The officers were working a wreck at about 3:30 a.m. on Loop 410 near Honeysuckle Lane when a pickup crashed into a police cruiser. A 27-year-old woman who stopped to help was killed in the wreck. Two police officers and two other men were injured in the wreck. The two men are in critical condition, police said Sunday. Siemens said one police officer was treated and released at the scene. The officer initially thought he tore his rotator cuff, but the injury was downgraded to a bruised shoulder. "He's in a lot of pain. He'll be off for the week," Siemens said. The other officer remained hospitalized Monday with injuries to his elbow, knee and ribs. Siemens said that officer had a surgery on his elbow Sunday and will have surgery on his knee when the swelling subsides. Siemens was "relieved" that the officers are expected to recover, but recalled how worried he was when he was told about the wreck. "It's a call you hope you never get your whole career," he said. "I was relieved ... but we're still deeply saddened by the tragic loss of the female." The woman has not yet been identified by the Bexar County Medical Examiner's Office. The suspect driving the pickup will be charged with intoxication manslaughter and four counts of intoxication assault, Siemens said. ——— ©2019 the San Antonio Express-News
