Motorcycle Officer Injured

A Tyler motorcycle officer was injured this morning on SE Loop 323 at Fifth St. It's the second time in less than a year this same officer has been injured on the Loop. The police department says officer James Callaway was trying to catch a suspected traffic violator, when a car in front of him suddenly slowed down. Callaway put down his motorcycle to avoid hitting the car. He hurt his wrist and foot in the process, and was taken to the hospital for at least one broken bone. Callaway has since been released.
