TX Officer Killed While Training for Motorcycle Unit

TX Officer Killed While Training for Motorcycle Unit

Associated Press

August 19, 2010

CEDAR PARK, Texas — A 41-year-old Austin-area police officer training for motorcycle service has died of injuries incurred when the motorcycle on which he was training crashed.

Cedar Park police say Officer Leonard Reed died Wednesday evening, several hours after the mid-afternoon crash on a side street in the Austin suburb.

A Cedar Park police spokesman says details of the crash are still sketchy, but he says a motorcycle officer traveling with Reed tried to revive the officer until emergency medical technicians could arrive.

Police Capt. Jeff Hayes says Reed had been on the Cedar Park force for four years and had been training for the motorcycle force for about two weeks.

    Reed, you will NEVER be forgotten and will be in our hearts forever. As another of our Motor Officers said....."You've been promoted to Guardian Angel!" We miss you and love you! Until we meet again....may you rest in peace. We'll take it from here! May God be with and bless your wife and sons.

    RIP OFFICER... While this is a tragedy, at least it was not due to an incident involving a suspect.
