A Montgomery County Police officer was hit on I-270 early Thursday morning.

Police said the officer was hit after responding to a chase. Those two suspects got away and a separate person came along and hit the officer on the road. 

An investigation closed southbound I-270 at Route 121 in the Clarksburg area, but the road has since reopened.

The on-scene crash investigation is complete, police said. 

The officer suffered non-life threatening injuries.
