SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - The family of a San Diego police officer injured by a suspected drunk driver has released an update on his condition.

Officer Travis Betley's patrol car was t-boned in the early morning hours of December 30, along Mission Gorge Road in Santee.

It took rescuers nearly an hour to pull him from the wreckage.

His family says Betley has undergone several successful surgeries since the collision and is beginning physical therapy.

The statement says Betley has a "positive attitude and is ready to face the challenges ahead. Travis is a strong young man and is determined to return to the field as quickly as possible."
