VIDEO: 2 Florida Deputies Hospitalized After Car Crashes into Orlando Massacre Victim’s Funeral Procession

Two Osceola County, FL, deputies were injured late Saturday morning after a driver crashed into one of them during a funeral procession for a victim of the Pulse nightclub shooting, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

A 44-year-old woman was ticketed for failure to yield to a funeral procession, but she has not been criminally charged. She told authorities that she thought someone waived her out to cross the procession, WFTV reports.

The front of her Honda sedan struck one of the deputies head-on. The second deputy's motorcycle then struck the back of the car.

Pray for both officers full recovery. Once again I ask the question, and don't kill the messenger please, do we really need motor officers on motorcycles? Sorry my cycle Brothers and Sisters but this truth keeps biting us in the rear end and we have and will lose my of us if we don't change this mind set. Wouldn't traffic officers in cars do the same job less risk? I don't have any of the facts other then what was in this article, the collision was the fault of the female driver who should have stopped, but I bet $ that if the two officers were in cars rather then motors they would either not have been injured or at the least less injured. We all know this yet we still have motorcycle officers, WHY?

KevcopAz, motors can get through heavy traffic faster then a squad can, have a lower 'profile' then a squad and are great for perimeter setting. And add in lower maintenance and fuel costs. Just sayin'. Blues, Stay Safe.
