    A SEPTA police officer is recovering after his vehicle was struck by a drunk driver Saturday.

    The officer was on 5th and Market Streets in the Old City section of Philadelphia just before 4 a.m. when his vehicle was struck by a white SUV. The impact sent the officer’s vehicle into a light post and up onto a curb.

    The unindentified driver was arrested for drunk driving after blowing a blood alcohol level of .149 -- twice the legal limit, according to reports from the Associated Press.

    The officer suffered non-life-threatening injuries in the crash. He was taken to Jefferson Hospital where he is currently in stable condition.

    The driver of the SUV was not injured.
