A motor officer with the California Highway Patrol suffered "minor to moderate injuries" Sunday when a big rig veered into his lane on the Bay Bridge.

According to KTVU-TV, the CHP officer was thrown from his motorcycle, landing in the slow traffic lane. He was able to get out of traffic to the shoulder.

The officer—who has not yet been identified—was taken to a nearby hospital and later released.

CHP Golden Gate Division said on Facebook, "The CHP officer was following a slow-moving disabled vehicle in the westbound slow lane on Interstate 80… The motorcycle officer was in the process of escorting the disabled vehicle off the bridge when a big rig—in the second-to-right lane—veered into the far right lane and struck the motorcycle."
