A CHP officer was injured after being flung from his motorcycle during a crash on the 170 Freeway this morning.

Around 8 a.m. this morning, the CHP officer was headed northbound on the 170 Freeway, KTLA reports. Near Burbank Blvd., the officer crashed with a Mini Cooper and was flung from the motorcycle. The officer suffered moderate injuries, but CHP Sgt. James Ryland said that they expect the officer "is going do just fine." The driver of the Mini Cooper was not hurt.

Northbound lanes 1, 2 and 3 were blocked from 8:30 a.m. onward, with initial reports saying the lanes would be closed for about an hour. However, CHP later tweeted that lanes 3 and 4 are now open, while the carpool lane and lanes 1 and 2 are blocked until further notice.
