Motorcycle Officer Hit when Pickup Truck Runs Red Light

Release Date: June 20, 2018

18-22122

On June 19, 2018 a Kingston Police Motorcycle Officer was hit when a pickup truck allegedly ran a red light on Elliott Avenue at Division Street.

At approximately 10:30 a.m. the motorcycle officer was riding northbound on Division Street. While proceeding through a green traffic light, the officer observed a truck traveling eastbound on Elliott Avenue that allegedly ran a red light at approximately 50 km/h. The officer used his training to slow as much as possible and avoid hitting all but the rear passenger side bumper of the truck, as it passed in front of him. A car travelling in the lane next to the officer was also forced to brake to avoid a collision. The officer kept the bike upright and as a result he suffered only a minor injury to his knee. The police motorcycle sustained minimal front end damage.

The driver of the truck, a 56-year-old local man, stopped immediately and was both cooperative and apologetic. He was charged under the Highway Traffic Act with red light – fail to stop.

The Officer, Constable Pete Lafontaine has been the Kingston Police Motorcycle Training Officer for the past four years. Constable Lafontaine believes that training and awareness enabled him to respond quickly and slow enough to avoid a more serious collision while maintaining control of the bike.

Drivers are reminded to be extra alert and watchful for Motorcycles, Cyclists and Pedestrians, which are all much easier to miss than another full-sized motor vehicle.
