A California Highway Patrol officer was injured Thursday afternoon when his motorcycle was struck by a car on westbound Interstate 80 near Ashby Avenue. 

Officer Brian Land said his colleague sustained moderate injuries in the 3:37 p.m. accident, which briefly closed the number one lane. 

Land said the other vehicle, a light colored Buick Century, stopped after the incident. 

Land was unable to say whether any citation was issued, or to identify the officer and the nature of his injuries.
