An officer with the Arlington Police Department was hospitalized after he was hit by a vehicle while riding a bike, police said on Sunday.

The officer was off-duty, but working in his uniform for an assignment at AT&T Stadium at 12:45 a.m. on Saturday.

He was riding alongside another bicycle officer across Collins Street near Rogers Street.

One of the officers was hit by a dark colored or black SUV. He fell from the bike and the SUV driver continued northbound on Collins Street.

Investigators have not ruled out the possibility that a second car was driving close to the suspect’s vehicle.

The officer was taken to Medical City of Arlington Hospital and released about three hours later.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Stephen Lawson at 817-459-5635.
