A San Antonio police officer tending the scene of a wreck was rushed to an area hospital in critical condition after being struck by a vehicle early Sunday, police at the scene said.

Officers responded about 1:15 a.m. to the 8600 block of South Flores Street where the unidentified officer was working a traffic crash when a red vehicle traveling south struck him as he stood in the number two lane directing traffic, according to Sgt. Michelle Ramos, San Antonio Police Department spokesman.

The driver was evaluated and did not show any signs of intoxication, according to Ramos. She was released at the scene.
