A 46-year-old Los Angeles Police Department motorcycle officer was injured in a collision with a vehicle today in the Santa Clarita Valley while he was headed to work on Highway 14, an investigator said.

The motorcycle officer’s injuries are considered moderate and not life-threatening, said California Highway Patrol Officer Gordon Verrone.

At 5:30 a.m., the officer and the driver of a 2008 Toyota Corolla collided in the southbound lanes of Highway 14 just north of Golden Valley Road, Verrone said.

“The officer was fully ejected from the motorcycle onto the pavement,” Verrone said. The officer is a resident of Palmdale, but his name was not released.

He was taken to Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital for treatment of his injuries.

CHP investigators closed two of the freeway’s southbound lanes for about an hour, Verrone said. All lanes were reopened by 8 a.m.

The driver of the car involved in the crash is also a resident of Palmdale, Verrone said.

Although the investigation is continuing, no charges are expected to filed in connection with the case, he said.
