Officer injured by SUV while directing traffic

CARMEL, Ind. (AP) — A police officer is recovering after he was struck by a sport utility vehicle while directing traffic at the Indiana golf course where the BMW Championship is being played.

Carmel police say Officer Cody Barlow stepped into the road to direct traffic near the Crooked Stick Golf Course on Wednesday afternoon and was struck by an SUV. A news release says the impact hurled Barlow up onto the vehicle’s hood and windshield, striking the side mirror. Barlow was treated for his injuries at an Indianapolis hospital and released.

Police arrested 57-year-old Keith Foster of Zionsville on preliminary charges of drunken driving causing injury and criminal recklessness with a vehicle. Foster was later released on $10,000 bond.

It wasn’t clear if Foster had an attorney and his phone number was unlisted.
