WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A Wichita officer recovering from injuries suffered when he was run over by a stolen car earlier this year has been transferred to a rehabilitation center in Texas.

The Wichita Eagle reports that Brian Arterburn flew to Texas on Tuesday after spending several months at a Colorado hospital. He’s expected to continue rehabilitation until he’s cleared to go home.

The 25-year police veteran was unconscious for multiple days after being hit by the car in February. He began walking again while at Craig Hospital in Colorado.

Arterburn was an officer assigned to the Wichita Police Department’s Patrol South bureau when he was hurt.

Justin Terrazas is accused of driving the vehicle. He is charged with aggravated battery against a law enforcement officer and other felonies in connection with the case.
