A 43-year-old Metro police officer on a motorcycle was recently injured in a crash with a car near Maryland Parkway and Katie Avenue. He was transported to University Medical Center for treatment after being knocked off the motorcycle and skidding 60 feet. According to the Las Vegas Sun, evidence indicates that a 2009 Ford Fusion, driven by 19-year-old Savannah Hooks, turned in front of the motorcycle without seeing it, causing the accident. Hooks was not injured.
Motorcycle accidents affect hundreds of thousands of individuals every year. Often they result in serious injuries and death because there is virtually nothing to protect the driver of a motorcycle. These kinds of accidents can happen to anyone, even police officers who are trained to use motorcycles. The officer in this case was extremely lucky to escape devastating injuries because many do not fare so well.
