The LSU Police Department has set up a fund to help defray expenses of the officer injured Saturday night when a car struck the motorcycle he was riding after the LSU-Alabama football game.

Sgt. Christopher Gresham, 33, was helping escort a motorcade of University of Alabama officials and team doctors to the airport just before midnight when the wreck occurred.

The eight-year LSU police veteran suffered an injured knee and several broken bones and fractures.

The fund will help offset Gresham’s medical bills and loss of income while recovering, LSU spokesman Billy Gomila said in a release issued Thursday.

Contributions may be made online, or via check made payable to the LSU Foundation.

Include “Chris Gresham Family Support Fund” in the notation line.
