DORAL, FLA. (WSVN) - A Doral Police officer who was injured in a motorcycle crash has been released from the hospital.

Officer Mauricio Oliveira was seen greeting colleagues from the department as he walked out of Jackson Memorial Hospital, Monday.

Oliveira, a 10-year veteran with the force, spent the weekend recuperating from head injuries he sustained when, authorities said, he lost control, veered off the road and hit a tree along Northwest 112th Avenue, near 97th Avenue, Friday afternoon.

The officer skidded back onto the pavement, dropping his department-issue bike.
