File: A motorcycle policeman returns to his bike after checking with police officers questioning a man curbside at Los Angeles International Airport amid a heightened security alert on April 16, 2013.

A Los Angeles Police Officer is in the hospital Saturday morning in serious but stable condition after his motorcycle collided with a car.

The accident occurred just after midnight on Forest Lawn Drive. LAPD says the officer was broadsided when a woman driving a Toyota Corolla attempted to make a right turn.

LAPD says the officer was returning home from an off-duty job at the Hollywood Bowl. Officers say the driver was cooperative and passed a field sobriety test.
