A New York Police Department officer was hospitalized earlier this afternoon after crashing his motorcycle while escorting Vice President Joe Biden’s motorcade through New York City:
According to NBC NY, the officer is listed in stable condition at Elmhurst Hospital in Queens:
From the motorcade, the officer could be seen lying face down, with other officers around him assisting him. The officer is in stable condition at Elmhurst Hospital, police said.
The motorcycle crashed in an eastbound lane of the Grand Central Parkway near the on-ramp to the RFK bridge as the motorcade escorted Biden to LaGuardia Airport after the vice president spent two days in the city.
Here’s hoping for a speedy and full recovery.
