A police officer was injured in a Milwaukee motorcycle accident Monday night.
According to a Milwaukee Police Department report, a motorcycle officer was hit by a car in the intersection of Lisbon Avenue and 27th Street shortly after 7:00 p.m. Monday. Officials say the officer was responding to help in a foot chase of several armed robbery suspects at the time of the accident.
The officer was heading east on Lisbon Avenue when he collided with the other vehicle. The motorcycle slid across the street, coming to rest near a bus shelter. “He had his emergency lights and siren activated, and a vehicle traveling northbound failed to yield and struck the officer,”said Milwaukee Police Lieutenant Tim Heier.
The driver of the other vehicle stayed at the scene and was cited for failure to yield to an emergency vehicle.
The 40 year-old police officer sustained some broken bones in the accident, according to Heier. He was transported to an area hospital for treatment.
