Police say officers were conducting traffic enforcement on Highway 1 on Feb. 9, when a motorcycle rider was flagged down by police.

After initially stopping, police say the rider accelerated, hitting the officer and knocking him to the ground.

Police say the officer suffered a traumatic brain injury, spent a month off work and is only now making a graduated return to the job.

North Vancouver media spokesman Sgt. Peter DeVries says the information the public gave police was instrumental in getting to this point in the investigation.
