    The motorcade for Vice President-elect Mike Pence struck and injured a D.C. police reserve officer Wednesday afternoon, according to the U.S. Secret Service.

    The officer was conducting traffic control near the intersection of 6th and F streets NW about 1:45 p.m. when a vehicle in the motorcade struck him, D.C. police said.

    The officer was taken to the hospital with a minor injury, the Secret Service said. He has been released from the hospital.

    Pence called interim Police Chief Peter Newsham and the injured officer to express his appreciation for law enforcement, according to D.C. Police Director of Communications Dustin Sternbeck.
