VIDEO: CA Motor Officer Critically Injured Responding to Fatal Crash

A Pomona (CA) Police Department motorcycle officer was critically injured in a wreck while responding to a separate fatal crash on Tuesday, authorities said.

Pomona police said the motorcycle officer was responding to the scene of a crash that resulted in the death of a pedestrian when the officer was involved in a separate wreck with a Ford Explorer about eight blocks north of the first crash.

The injured officer was described as a 32-year-old who had been with Pomona police for nine years and with law enforcement for 12 years, reports KABC.

Authorities said the crash occurred when the Ford Explorer turned left into on-coming traffic, striking the motorcycle officer. The driver of the Ford was taken to Pomona Police Department headquarters for questioning and was reported to be cooperating fully with the investigation.

The officer was critically injured and transported to LAC+USC Medical Center for treatment of a serious head injury.

My prayers for the injured Officer to recover.

Sad.Cant say for sure without knowing the facts but Im guessing if this officer was in a patrol car he would have survived. I know i will anger many "motor cops" but its time to cut down on the number of motorcycle officers.Too many die or are injured in wrecks that if they had been in a car they would have walked away from. There are very very few things that a motor officer can do on a bike that he or she can't do in a car. There are a few, escorts are easier, perhaps catching a speeder is quicker and they do hide better then a cop car. AND they can't transport anyone else! Do cost less then a car, but is the few things they can do "better" and the cost of the vehicle worth the life of our fellow officers? Take the time sometime to look at the stats within your own department. Compare the number of the dead and the number of the injured (much more then vehicle crashes) of motor officers compared to officers in vehicles other then motors. Sorry my "motor head" Brothers and sisters.
