CHP vet in critical condition from 405 crash
My apologies as this first article is a couple of weeks old. Damned idiot driver that hit him was using the breakdown lane on the shoulder as his own personal lane. I hope they throw the book at him.
PALMS, Calif. (KABC) -- A California Highway Patrol motorcycle officer was critically injured in a crash that shut down a busy portion of the 405 Freeway near Palms on Wednesday.
The accident, involving the motorcycle officer and two other vehicles, was reported on the 405 North, just south of National Boulevard at about 8:30 a.m. Authorities said the officer had completed a traffic stop of a Honda SUV on the shoulder of the freeway when an Infiniti sedan slammed into him from behind, shoving him and his motorcycle into the back of the SUV, which overturned upon impact.
There was a doctor and some other medical personnel who saw what happened and helped the officer, 52-year-old Philip Ortiz.

"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
-General Omar Bradley, United States Army
