Hit by a friendly President

Shortly after his arival at Gleneagles in Scotland, US President Bush took in the Scottish air and a spot of exercise on his Presidential bicycle.
.
All was fine and dandy, as they say in Texas, until the President got a tad to ambitious and cycled furiously down a slope, lost control and ran over a British Policeman doing his best to protect the assembling world leaders.
.
The shaken and injured Special Branch Policeman was taken to hospital. A concerned Whitehouse Press aid commented that it is not the first time the President had fallen of his 'bike'.
.
It is not yet known whether the Police Officer is to be awarded a 'purple heart '.
.
Whilst it is not, sadly, uncommon for Britons to be hit by friendly US fire this is the first known case of a British Bobby to be downed by a friendly President.

While I do not know whether the Police Officer injured in the drive-by bike incident will get the purple heart, I do hope that he is okay. In fulfilling his job to protect, I am afraid that I don't think this was covered as a possible scenerio.
