LEAVENWORTH COUNTY — Law enforcement authorities are investigating a hit and run incident that injured a police officer.
Just before 3p.m. Tuesday, a Bonner Springs Police Officer attempted to conduct a traffic stop on a black sport bike (2008 or newer Honda CBR1000rr, red/black wheels and accents, stickers on side of bearing) for a traffic violation, according to a media release.
The motorcycle took a turn too fast and drove down into an embankment. The officer exited his patrol vehicle in an attempt to contact the driver and the driver drove directly at the officer and intentionally struck the officer causing injury to the officer.
The white male driver then fled northbound onto Kansas 7 Highway into Leavenworth County and pursuing officers lost sight.
If you can identify this motorcycle or driver, please contact Detective Haney firstname.lastname@example.org
