A Grand Prairie officer is hospitalized after their motorcycle crashed during a pursuit, police say.
The crash happened at the intersection of Cliff Creek Crossing and U.S. Highway 67 -- just north of Interstate 20, according to Dallas police.
The officer initiated a traffic stop in the 4000 block of S. Belt Line Road in Grand Prairie around 11:20 a.m., police said. The chase eventually left Grand Prairie and went into the city of Dallas, where the officer's motorcycle skidded on gravel and fall to the road.
