EL PASO, Texas (KVIA) -- An El Paso firefighter who had responded to an accident scene was struck by a vehicle on Transmountain at Paseo Del Norte Wednesday morning in what police said was a hit-and-run.

A spokesman for the fire department told ABC-7 that the firefighter was in stable condition and was being moved to the ICU, after being taken to the hospital initially in critical condition with serious injuries.

El Paso police officials said they were looking for a black pickup truck - or possibly an SUV - with windshield damage that left the scene after hitting the firefighter.

Authorities shut down the westbound lanes of Transmountain for much of the morning as they investigated the incident. The road fully reopened just before midday.

The roads were covered with snow and visibility was limited on Transmountain at the time the firefighter was struck. Our ABC-7 Stormtrack weather team issued a First Alert to warn drivers about the changing conditions.

    1. Madmike with his idiotic responses. Why in the flipping f:;k do you need to see the other vehicle? Not the point in the story pendejo. Someone got seriously hurt!

      1. It was a question you sick tranny, not a response. Why don’t you put on some pants if you want to be a man. Oh that’s right, you haven’t decided what type of germ species you want to be. An illegal one i’m sure. You don’t don’t even qualify to be a corona-virus. Just a green slimy common virus that was thrown out of the house by your own foster parents.

  1. Madmike resorts to mother insults. Lol. Stupid ex LE dummy with the IQ a pig. I bet if we dig into your highschool grades, not college because you have none, you were below average moron. Your postings are like 8th grade level. And I’m being generous.

  2. If madmike is assigned to case, forget it, they will never catch the perp. Like Elmer fud looking for a carrot. Kinda like the sheriff in the series Dukes of Hazard. Roscoe. Mas pendejo.
