Dover PD officer’s leg broken during procession crash

DOVER – A Dover Police officer suffered a broken leg after his motorcycle crashed en route to the funeral of a slain Delaware State Police trooper, authorities said Monday.

Cpl. Jason Pfeiffer was thrown from the motorcycle after it clipped the back of a Dover police cruiser last Friday morning at approximately 5 a.m., spokesman Master Cpl. Mark Hoffman said.

The hospitalized officer also suffered a facial laceration and other non-life threatening injuries. For security reasons, police did not update his status on Monday.

The accident occurred as Cpl. Pfeiffer was merging onto Del. 1 near Exit 104 and the Dodge Charger swerved into the same lane, Cpl. Hoffman said. The motorcycle was passing on the left in order to move to the front of the procession, police said.

Several Dover Police officers were heading toward the funeral at the Chase Center on the Riverfront in Wilmington in dark, windy rainy conditions when the crash happened, authorities said.

Yeah, and the narrative always remains of how motorcycles are safer for processions. It is ridiculous. Almost every funeral procession has a motorcycle collision. Look it up.

Once you Google it, there is no need to come back on here and make excuses. Just simply say "wow, you make a great point. I didn't realize how often this happens".
