CHP motorcycle officer hurt in collision with car during Amgen
BRENTWOOD, Calif. -- An Oakland California Highway Patrol motorcycle officer was hit by a car and injured Saturday in Brentwood while working on the Amgen Tour of California bicycle race, a CHP spokesman said.
The officer was riding ahead of the pack of bicyclists just before 12:30 p.m. today providing traffic control for the race when the crash occurred, according to CHP spokesman Jonathan Fransen.
The officer was on Marsh Creek road just east of Deer Valley Road when a vehicle in front of the motorcycle made a u-turn and collided with the officer, Fransen said.
The officer was flown to a local hospital for treatment with what were thought to be moderate to major injuries, but is now expected to recover and could be released as soon as tomorrow, Fransen said.
The collision remains under investigation and no arrest has been made, Fransen said.
