Without regard for his own safety, the officer grabbed the man performing the sobriety test and pushed him out of harms way before being struck by the police vehicle. The officer was thrown violently into the air after being struck by the car. Miraculously, the officer sustained only minor injuries and was released from the hospital the same morning. The man performing the sobriety test was uninjured. Both drivers were subsequently charged with DWI and booked into the El Paso County Detention Facility.
