OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A skateboarder in the middle of one of Omaha’s busiest streets is recovering after being hit by a police cruiser.

Police say the 19-year-old man suffered leg injuries in the late Friday night accident.

Police say Officer Patrick Soltys was westbound on Dodge Street and hit Thafer Alshomari as he crested a hill in the street.

Police say Alshomari was riding a skateboard in the center lane of Dodge Street when he was hit.

Police say several witnesses on the sidewalk had shouted at Alshomari to get out of the street just before he was hit.
