Northbound 110 Freeway briefly closed after crash involving LAPD officer

All lanes of the northbound 110 Freeway were briefly closed near Elysian Park on Wednesday afternoon following a collision involving an LAPD motorcycle officer.

The motorcycle and another vehicle were involved in the crash about 3:30 p.m. near the 110 Freeway and Stadium Way, according to LAPD Officer Jenny Houser.

The officer was taken to a hospital in stable condition, Houser said.

Before the crash, the officer was driving his motorcycle on the northbound freeway. It’s unclear if he was responding to an incident. 

The California Highway Patrol shut down the 110 Freeway but gradually reopened lanes. The freeway was fully reopened about 5:15 p.m.
