    A California Highway Patrol officer on a motorcycle requested his own medical aid after a suspected DUI driver rammed into him on State Route 125 Friday.

    Around 4:20 p.m., the CHP motor officer called dispatch to say he had been badly rear-ended in the freeway's southbound lanes near Interstate 8. 

    An ambulance soon arrived to transport him to the Sharp Memorial Hospital. 

    Video from the scene shows other CHP officers placing handcuffs on the other driver involved. They say he has been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence.

    The crash is still under investigation.
