A Miami motorcycle patrolman who was less than a year from retirement was killed on his way home from work Tuesday and two others were critically injured in a multi-vehicle crash just west of Florida International University's Southwest Dade campus. Four lanes over, resting alone on the closed roadway, were the twisted remains of the officer's black motorcycle.
Passersby snapped pictures of the violent scene where a motorcycle cop and almost a dozen others were injured in southwest Miami-Dade.
It seemed to involve at least three vehicles, including a white auto, which was on its side at the scene.
While Sky 10 was above the crash scene, two women and a man were seen being placed onto stretchers.
The westbound lanes of SW 8 Street are now shutdown so drivers should avoid the area.
