A San Antonio police officer responding to a crash was hospitalized after getting into an accident himself.

It happened just before 1 a.m. on Sunday when an officer was heading to a crash on the East side near I-35 North and Loop 410. An 18-wheeler saw the crash from a distance and swerved to try to avoid it. That's when the officer behind the truck rear-ended it.

The officer was transported to the hospital, but suffered only minor injuries. No one else was hurt in the crash. The crash remains under investigation.
