Two cops were injured Saturday, with one run over by an all-terrain vehicle that peeled away from the downtown Brooklyn scene, police said.

The officers were responding on motorized scooters to reports of a crew of bikers riding at Old Fulton and Hicks Sts. in the shadow of the Brooklyn Bridge just before 5:30 p.m.

One of the cops fell off his scooter and injured his arm and leg after one of the bikers rode close to him, according to an initial police account.
