The accident happened near the intersection of Bayberry and White Heather at about 7:40am. According to an HISD spokesperson, the principal of nearby Montgomery Elementary School had requested an officer be on hand for traffic control due to road work involving a city flood control project in the area.
The officer was struck by a car turning from Bayberry onto White Heather. He suffered a leg injury and was transported to Southwest Memorial Hospital for treatment. His condition was not immediately available.
