    DPS officer hurt in crash on I-17

    A Department of Public Safety officer was seriously hurt after his motorcycle was struck on Interstate 17 near Indian School on Tuesday afternoon, the second such collision for the day involving a DPS motorcycle.

    A truck pulling a trailer came upon slow traffic and suddenly stopped, losing control, Officer Robert Bailey said.

    The trailer hit a white Crown Victoria, causing the vehicle to strike the officer's motorcycle.

    The motorcycle hit the officer and pinned him against the barrier, Bailey said.

    The officer has been reported as having serious injuries that were not considered life-threatening.

    Earlier Tuesday in Chandler, a Department of Public Safety officer was almost hit by a vehicle while investigating a minor collision, officials said.

    DPS officers saw a car coming toward them on the westbound San Tan Loop 202 near the northbound Loop 101 and ran out of the way.

    The car hit a DPS motorcycle. However, the officer was not hit

    We truly live in the land of the idiot drivers here in AZ, people here can do everything under the sun while driving......except actually pay attention and drive. Prayers for a fast recovery for the officer.
