A Baton Rouge police motorcycle officer suffered minor injuries in a crash Wednesday morning with an SUV on Rabey Street off College Drive, authorities say.
Both the officer and the driver of the SUV were traveling west on Rabey Street around 11:30 a.m. when the SUV driver attempted to turn left into the Walmart parking lot and ran into the motorcycle officer, who was in the multi-use turning lane, said Baton Rouge police spokesman Cpl. Don Coppola.
It appears the driver did not see the motorcycle, Coppola said. The driver of the SUV was not cited.
The officer was taken to a local hospital for precautionary reasons, Coppola said.
