Not really the smartest thing for the cop to do, at least on a motorcycle. At least he should have waited for the big red truck to go by before he tried to shut the inside lane down. The vehicles behind it would have had a better view of what was up ahead.

Apparently, they were escorting an ambulance to the hospital.

That is pretty sad. You could see he tried to jump out of the way right before impact.

I wonder....
The guys on the bridge just happened to be video-taping the freeway on-ramp?

Looks real enough. Ouch.

There was a very serious accident on the other side of the highway which you cannot see. I think the ambulance was transporting one of the victims from that crash. Not sure why an ambulance would require a police escort.

Maybe that's why they were filming. Also maybe that might be the reason the car didn't see the cop right away because he or she could have been rubber necking.

First off, how would some of those cars get over in time anyways with the cars that were in the other lane. Not the brightest idea....

I hope he made it.

I hope he is ok. Is that a normal practice to shutdown traffic like that? The yellow car never saw him until the last second.

I guess he stopped in neutral. If he had been in 1st he could have shot across the slightly open left lane.

The car that hit him had plenty of time to see him. He wasn't looking. There was nothing blocking his view once the truck changed lanes.

Still an overly risky move.
