AUSTIN (KXAN) — An Austin police officer was injured while riding his personal motorcycle — equipped with emergency lights — on North MoPac near the West 35th Street exit.
Austin-Travis County EMS says it was called to the crash at 2:54 p.m. Friday and took a man to Dell Seton Medical Center with injuries that are not expected to be life-threatening.
The Austin Police Department says a lieutenant collided with another vehicle. Authorities say the officer was off-duty at the time after completing a funeral escort.
Officers say the crash scene is now clear.
The crash is still under investigation.
On Sept. 1, 2016, an Austin police officer escorting a funeral procession on North Burnet Road was hit by a vehicle, dying from his injuries days later.
