A quick-thinking police officer is being hailed as a hero in Lubbock, Texas.
Early on September 10th, the officer responded to a minor car accident.

The officer was hospitalized but has since been released. The woman suffered a few scrapes and bruises.
Police say the man who hit the police car was driving too fast and was drunk.
