A Dallas police motorcycle officer, Senior Corporal Victor Lozada Tirado, has been involved in an accident at about 9:20 a.m. during escort operations for Hilary Clinton’s motorcade to a campaign rally in Oak Cliff.
A witness in WFAA-TV’s helicopter said the police officer was thrown 20 yards when the motorcycle hit a 3-foot wall and that another police officer appeared to be doing CPR after the accident.
Video of the accident scene shows a severely damaged Kawasaki 1000 Police Special motorcycle with parts lying near a retaining wall along the South Houston Street Viaduct near Reunion Boulevard East [MAP/SAT]. Extensive paramedic efforts to help the injured officer were also reported.
In 2007 a police officer was killed during motorcade transit for President George W. Bush in Albuquerque, N.M. Also, a fatal crash occurred during a presidential motorcade in Hawaii in 2006.
