Pueblo Police say an officer was injured this evening while helping to direct traffic around another crash. The officer was sitting in a vehicle near I-25 and the Abriendo exit, keeping traffic away from an accident, when his vehicle was hit from behind by a passing vehicle. Officers say he was hurt badly enough that he had to be taken away from the scene via ambulance. The extent of his injuries are not known.
Police say the Interstate through Pueblo has been icy and snow packed in spots, particularly over bridges.
