Two NYPD Officers Killed in Separate Off-Duty Accidents

May 05, 2015  | 

Two NYPD officers were killed Monday in separate off-duty accidents.

Katarzyna Erario, a three-year member of the force from Manhattan’s 33rd Precinct in Washington Heights, was hiking with a male friend in Minnewaska State Park Preserve on Monday when she fell about 50 feet through a hole in the ground – ending up in Sam’s Point Cave, a police source told the New York Daily News. Erario, 38, was taken to Kingston Hospital in Kingston, where she died from her injuries.

Another officer, Royston Ferguson, 35, who worked in the Brooklyn North Precinct, was riding his motorcycle south on Rockaway Parkway in Canarsie at about 6:45 p.m. when he was struck by an SUV driven by a school safety agent who was making a U-turn on Rockaway Parkway, sources said.

He was taken to Brookdale Hospital, where he died.
