Update: APD Motorcycle Officer

An Amarillo police motorcycle officer who spent the weekend in the hospital after an on-duty traffic accident is now back at home.

Just before 9pm Friday night as Officer James Clements headed south on Bell street he collided with a van turning onto Bell from Puckett.

Doctors released Officer Clements from the hospital last night. APD says the officer will stay on leave for recovery for several weeks.

The driver of the van will receive a summons letter for not allowing the officer the right of way since the van was pulling out from a stop sign.
