Just after 9 p.m. on Wednesday, a Daytona Beach police officer was actively working a crash investigation near LPGA Blvd. and N. Clyde Morris Blvd. 

According to investigators, the officer was standing by his vehicle when a 2019 Hyundai traveling eastbound on LPGB Blvd. struck the officer.  He was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.

The officer's vehicle appeared to have sustained some damage as well.

Eastbound traffic along LPGA Blvd. was shut down for several hours while the FHP investigated.
