TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Alabama police officers plan to use a motorcycle ride to raise money for a colleague injured in a recent crash.
Tuscaloosa officer Justin Taylor was off duty July 7 when his motorcycle crashed into a car that pulled in front of him.
Taylor suffered serious injuries and is still recovering a month later.
Tuscaloosa Police Chief Brent Blankley says fellow officers have organized a benefit motorcycle ride for Aug. 23. The $25 entry fee for riders and $5 for passengers will go to Taylor to help with his medical bills.
