Authorities said the trooper involved in the collision pulled over a driver around 1:00 a.m.. and was struck by a vehicle passing by. That driver did not stop.

The trooper, whose identity hasn't been released, was sent to a Houston hospital for treatment.

The driver who hit the trooper was stopped by authorities later and arrested.
