A Lawrence police officer who was struck by a pickup truck Thursday night was released Friday from Lawrence Memorial Hospital.

Medical crews transported the officer to the hospital.

Police arrested the driver of the truck, a 22-year-old Lawrence man, on charges of reckless driving, having no driver's license in his possession and driving left of center.

He was released on bond Friday morning.
