The officer survived with a fractured collarbone, police said. Photos from the scene obtained by The Post show his body lying face-up in the roadway across the yellow center lines.

Cops arrested the driver, who was charged with reckless driving and driving-under-the-influence.

The incident occurred as officers were clearing out the parking lots outside the Associated and the Speedway gas station next door, sources said.
