The Glendale Police Department says a pedestrian has possible life threatening injuries after being hit by a motorcycle officer in the area of Glendale and 99th avenues.
Police say the officer was also transported, but is in stable condition.
The crash happened just before 3:30 a.m.
Police have said the pedestrian was walking in the roadway in a dark area of the road, and are calling the crash “a truly unfortunate accident.”
