A Nebraska police chief and veteran New Jersey officer with more than 40 years in law enforcement between them were killed in motorcycle crashes in recent days.

Aurora (Neb.) Police Chief Godfrey Brokenrope died Saturday, two days after an off-duty motorcycle crash on Interstate 80 near Seward.

Chief Brokenrope, 50, had been hospitalized since about 5 p.m. Thursday, after his motorcycle crashed in the median as he attempted to stop his bike to avoid slower traffic.

Brokenrope had served as chief with the agency since 2006, reports the Journal Star. He earned his law enforcement certification in 1989.

On Saturday, Moorestown (N.J.) Police Officer Craig Berner died after his motorcycle overturned after 10 p.m. Saturday. Berner, 52, had served with the agency for more than 20 years.

During the accident, Berner was thrown from his bike into the path of an oncoming pickup truck, reports the Courier Post.
