The Austin Police Department released dashcam video of a police officer who struck a motorcyclist with his patrol car.
Officer Damon Dunn had just completed a traffic stop near Scofield Ridge Parkway and Mopac on May 29.
According to the police report, Officer Dunn was putting notes in his computer when he realized he had rolled through a stop sign at the intersection of Magazine and Lamplight Village.
As he rolled through the stop sign, Dunn struck a motorcyle ridden by 74-year-old Louis Olivier.
Olivier was taken to Brackenridge where he remained in good condition Friday.
No disciplinary action was taken against Officer Dunn.
There is a law enforcement exemption that allows police to use mobile data units, such as computers, in their vehicles while driving.
