Dallas Motorcycle Crash Claims the Life of a Police Officer

Posted on Jan 29, 2012
An off-duty police officer was killed in a Dallas motorcycle crash on December 11. He was traveling northbound on Cesar Chavez Boulevard and crashed on the ramp leading onto eastbound Interstate 30 near downtown. Warren Mitchell, the police department spokesman, said that the officer had trouble handling the curve of the ramp and hit the retaining wall. The officer, identified as Matthew Garcia, was thrown from the motorcycle and fell to the eastbound shoulder of the freeway. The drop is estimated to be approximately 30 to 50 feet.

The motorcycle crash was called in by Garcia's wife, who was following behind her husband in a car. Garcia was declared dead at 1:35 a.m. that morning. He was a 35-year-old, four-year veteran of the Balch Springs Police Department. His wife is also a police officer.

The Dallas motorcycle crash attorneys at the Hart Law Firm want the family of Officer Garcia to know that our thoughts and prayers are with them during this traumatic time of their lives. We would also like to give our gratitude and thanks for the service provided by the police department and their continued sacrifice to keep the citizens of our community safe.
