A portion of Marsh Creek Road is down to one lane and under traffic control as a CHP officer was hit by motorist during the Amgen Tour of California bicycle race, today, Saturday, May 18, 2013. The officer was stopped and directing traffic for the race, when he was struck by a silver Mercedes.

The officer was transported to Round Valley Regional Park and airlifted to John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek.

It was reported that he was off of his motorcycle when hit and evidently does not remember what had happened.

The race is currently under way, during Stage 7 of 8 stages, which began at 11:30 a.m., taking bicyclists from Livermore and to the top of Mt. Diablo.
