A city police officer suffered a minor hip injury yesterday when he was struck by a bus while directing traffic in Northwest Baltimore, officials said.

Officer Darryl Jackson, a nine-year veteran of the force, was directing traffic around his disabled cruiser when he was hit by the right rear of a Mass Transit Administration bus in the 5100 block of Park Heights Ave. about 6 p.m., police spokesman Sam Ringgold said.

The officer was trapped briefly between the bus and his squad car and was flown to Maryland Shock Trauma Center, Mr. Ringgold said. A hospital official said Officer Jackson was listed in good condition last night.
