An Arlington police officer has returned home, following a wreck that sent her to the hospital.

According to Arlington police, a driver ran a red light and slammed into Officer Stacie Brown's patrol car.

It happened early Saturday morning along Matlock Road near Hwy 303, also known as Pioneer Parkway.

Brown was unconscious when firefighters cut her out of the car. The other driver was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

This message was posted Saturday on the Arlington Police Department Facebook page;

We want to our thank the community for all of the outpouring of support and well wishes in regards to one of our officers who was injured in a vehicle crash earlier this morning. At around 4 a.m., DWI Officer Stacie Brown was driving northbound on Matlock near Pioneer when she was struck by another motorist. She was transported to a local hospital but was released earlier today. Officer Brown is doing well and will return to duty soon. Thank you for always being concerned and backing your Police Department.

Brown will be out for a few days because of soreness, according to Arlington police.  They've determined the other driver was at fault because he ran a red light.
