INDIANAPOLIS--An IMPD officer was injured while on a motorcycle in a crash Monday afternoon that happened on the northeast side of Indianapolis.
Investigators believe three vehicles were involved and one of the drivers turned in front of the officer, which caused the collision. It happened just before 5:30 at the intersection of East 45th street and North Shadeland Avenue.
Police said the officer was on duty when the crash happened. He was taken to Eskenazi Hospital with serious injuries, but police say his condition has improved.
“We’re thankful that he’s been upgraded to stable condition. Whenever officers hear on the radio that an officer is down, it becomes all hands on deck,” said IMPD Public Information Officer William Young.
The officer was wearing a helmet.
“It’s extremely important. It provides that extra protection. This possibly saved this officer’s life,” said Young.
No one else was hurt. A blood draw was administered to all the drivers involved in the crash, per procedure in a crash that results in serious injuries.
“School is out for the summer. It is extremely important that we slow down and pay attention to what we’re doing. We share the road with folks. We have to remember that,” said Young.
