LAPD motorcycle officer hospitalized after 110 freeway hit-and-run accident

A Los Angeles Police Department motorcycle officer was hospitalized after a hit-and-run accident on the 110 Freeway Thursday night.

The crash happened around 8:13 p.m. on the 110 southbound at Highway 105, according to the California Highway Patrol.

One person was transported off the scene at 8:27 p.m., Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Nicholas Prange said.

The fire department won’t confirm the identity of the patients, but Officer Matthew Cruz, an LAPD spokesman, said the person was an officer on a motorcycle.

Cruz later said the officer was in stable condition and the crash was being investigated as a hit-and-run.

A Sig alert was issued at 8:26 p.m. for 110 south to 105 east, according to Highway Patrol. All lanes reopened at 10:14 p.m.

CHP dispatchers were unable to confirm the total number of vehicles involved in the crash.

Authorities are looking for a 2014 or 2015 white convertible sedan with a male driver and passenger who were allegedly involved in the crash, Cruz said.

Deputy Brenda Serna, spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, confirmed the sedan is a BMW.

Further information about the accident and the investigation was not available Thursday evening.
