Wichita police officer seriously hurt in motorcycle crash on Kellogg
Wichita Police Chief Gordon Ramsay Thursday night took to social media to provide an update on the officer injured in a crash on Kellogg near the Grove exit.
Ramsay says the officer suffered some broken ribs, an injured leg, a dislocated shoulder, bumps and bruises.
"Her humor is still intact and she joked speeders will be happy she's out of service for awhile," Ramsay wrote.
Last year, Wichita city leaders approved a grant to get motorcycle officers back on the road. Wednesday's crash was the first since the new motorcycle unit started in December.
A Wichita police officer is in serious condition following a crash on Kellogg near the Grove exit.
Wichita police confirm the officer was riding a motorcycle when the crash occurred. They say as traffic approached a construction zone near Hillside, a chain reaction occurred and drivers started to suddenly brake.
In an effort to avoid hitting the truck in front of her, the officer clipped the vehicle and laid down her motorcycle. Police say she is an experienced rider.
Emergency crews closed eastbound Kellogg at I-135 and diverted traffic while they worked the crash. Eastbound Kellogg is back open.
