A San Jose Police Department motorcycle officer was struck by a car on 4th Street south of Empire. The officer’s injuries are not life-threatening, according to police on the scene.

 

The 13-year veteran was responding with lights and sirens to a call of a man stabbing a woman. That’s when a car struck the officer, knocking him off his motorcycle.

The officer, unresponsive, was taken away by ambulance for treatment at a local hospital around 11:30 a.m. Friday, NBC Bay Area's Damian Trujillo reported.

“We're still trying to determine the extent of his injuries,” said SJPD’s Heather Randol. “The other driver is cooperating, and we're collecting as much information to figure out how this collision happened.”

The driver stayed at the scene and was talking with investigators.

Neighbors say the intersection of Fourth and Empire is notoriously dangerous.

Police are investigating the cause of the crash.
