A Tyler motorcycle officer has been transported to a local hospital after he was hit by a passing motorist.
Don Martin, the department's public information officer, said the accident happened moments ago near Lazy Creek and Calloway Drive by the Woods subdivision.
Martin said at this point it is unclear how the accident happened, but it is under investigation.
"He is hurt, but the injuries are non life-threatening," he said.
