A police officer on a motorcycle was hurt in a collision with a car in Venice Thursday afternoon.
The officer was traveling along Main Street near Sunset Avenue around 3 p.m. when a Ford Fusion turned in front of him, according to Santa Monica Police Department Traffic Division Sgt. Mike Boyd.
The officer, whose name was not released, sustained minor to moderate injuries and was taken to a hospital for treatment, he said.
Santa Monica police went to the scene because the accident was just over the Los Angeles city border.
The Los Angeles Police Department was also investigating the collision.
Robert Tomasch, 42, had been out for a run and returned to his parked car to find it had been hit.
Standing next to the police motorcycle laying on its side, he said police told him the motorcycle slammed into his vehicle after being hit by the Fusion.
