A Precinct 7 deputy constable is in the hospital after a car crashed into the side of his cruiser late last night. Investigators say the officer was on Milam approaching the intersection with Jefferson when a small car ran a red light. The car slammed into the deputy's car, sending it into some bushes. The deputy was taken to St. Joseph's hospital and is listed as stable.

The other driver was not injured. Officers say his blood will be tested for alcohol.
