Yesterday, two Boston Police officers were injured in separate motorcycle crashes on Warren Street in Roxbury. The accidents occurred within minutes of each other and just six blocks from each other. According to a department spokesperson, the first crash occurred around 10:25am. An off-duty officer riding his own motorcycle was injured in a car accident near the intersection of Warren Street and Martin Luther King Boulevard.
The second accident occurred after an on-duty officer riding a department motorcycle was involved in a separate motor vehicle accident while en route to the scene of the first accident. The second motorcycle crash happened near 564 Warren Street.
Both officers were transported to Boston Medical Center, and their injuries are thought to be non-life-threatening. The department is investigating both motor vehicle accidents.
