A motor officer with the El Paso Police Department who was injured in a traffic collision late last week is said to be making "remarkable progress" in recovery.

According to the El Paso Times, Officer Daniel Rodriguez was struck and run over by an SUV while escorting a funeral procession.

A Dodge Durango driven by 41-year-old Nicole Anne Pabon made a left turn, cut through the procession and struck Officer Rodriguez, police say.

Rodriguez has undergone several surgeries since being struck on Thursday morning.
