Preliminary reports say the officer was escorting a wide load in the northbound lanes when he was sideswiped by a car near the 610 South Loop.
Our cameras caught the officer standing and speaking with the wrecker crews who were towing his mangled bike, so it appears he's OK.
No word on the condition of the driver who hit him.
