A rookie San Antonio police officer who was struck by a suspected drunken driver after he stopped to help a stranded motorist on Loop 410 has died of his injures, a University Hospital spokesman has confirmed.

Officer Sergio Antillon, 25, who graduated from the academy on Aug. 20, passed away just after 6:30 a.m., a hospital spokesman said.

Officials declined to release any other information about the officer’s death and a spokesman from the Bexar County medical examiner’s office could not confirm it as of early Friday morning.

"It is with great sadness that I report the death of Officer Sergio Antillon today," Police Chief William McManus said. "My prayers are with his family, friends and co-workers."

In recent weeks more than 150 officers had donated blood for Antillon at the hospital’s blood donor room.

Antillon was on his way home in the early morning hours of Oct. 14 when he stopped to help the motorist who had been in a single-car accident in the southbound lanes of Northwest Loop 410 at West Military Drive.

An on-duty officer also stopped to help, police said. As the on-duty officer walked toward the scene from one side, a car driven by Sandra Coy Briggs, 58, drove toward the crash from the other side and plowed into the group, hitting both Antillon and the motorist.

The car also nearly missed hitting the on-duty officer, police said. The motorist was thrown over the guardrail, officials said, and Antillon was slammed into the guardrail.

Briggs is charged with two counts of intoxication assault, but police confirmed those charges were upgraded following Antillon’s death to one count of intoxication manslaughter and one count of intoxication assault. She posted $60,000 bail and was released from Bexar County Jail earlier this month.

Police took Biggs into custody at her home in Atascosa County Friday morning.
