Police were investigating a hit-and-run collision Wednesday involving an LAPD motorcycle officer near Sunset Boulevard and Pacific Coast Highway (map) in Pacific Palisades.
The officer was struck around 7:50 p.m. by an older man driving a dark grey convertible Mercedes who was last seen heading north on PCH, according to LAPD Sgt. Cynthia Barlow.
He was transported to UCLA Ronald Reagan Medical Center with a broken ankle, Barlow said.
The officer had just finished working a traffic enforcement detail when he was struck, according to Barlow.
