UPDATE: Crash involving SFPD motorcycle reported at 7th and Harrison streets

Traffic was shut down after 10 a.m. in the area of 7th and Harrison streets due to a crash involving a San Francisco police motorcycle and another vehicle, police said.

According to preliminary police reports, a grey minivan was traveling northbound on 7th Street. Meanwhile, officers riding motorcycles were traveling westbound on Harrison Street. The driver of the minivan reportedly traveled through a red light and struck one of the motorcycle officers.

Emergency personnel responded to the scene and the officer was taken to San Francisco General hospital.

Witnesses said the van sustained damage to its left side and windshield.

Police said the officer’s wounds were not life threatening.

The minivan driver remained at the scene and is cooperating with police. It appears he may have been from out of town, SFPD spokesman Albie Esparza said.

Esparza said the officer involved in the crash was a veteran officer, possibly a sergeant.

More details will be posted as they become available.
