A Los Angeles Police Department motorcycle officer was injured Thursday in an accident on the southbound Hollywood (101) Freeway in the Hollywood area, authorities said.
The crash was reported about 9:20 a.m. north of Santa Monica Boulevard, said California Highway Patrol Officer Monica Posada.
Three freeway lanes were blocked while an investigation was conducted into the accident. The officer's condition was not immediately known.
Police were unable to immediately confirm reports that all motor officers were ordered off the streets Thursday because of an at-large ex-cop suspected in three homicides.
