COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN) -- A Columbus Police officer is recovering after being pinned under a vehicle along I-71 Thursday morning.

Columbus Police spokesman Sgt. Rich Weiner said Lawrence was taken to Riverside Methodist Hospital with broken bones and cuts to her head. She's expected to make a full recovery.
