Dover Officer Hospitalized Following Accident (Updated) 5-8-2017

A Dover Police Officer was hospitalized following an accident early Friday morning.  The motorcycle officer was assisting in the escort of a large procession that was traveling to Wilmington from Dover for the funeral of Cpl. Stephen Ballard of the Delaware State Police.  At approximately 5:00AM, the procession merged onto Delaware Route 1 near exit 104.  As the Cpl. Jason Pfeiffer attempted to pass the procession on the left in order to get to the front, another officer operating a Dodge Charger police cruiser, swerved into the same lane.  Cpl. Pfeiffer struck the rear of the vehicle, ejecting him from the motorcycle.  Cpl. Pfeiffer, who is an 11-year veteran of the Dover Police Department, was hospitalized with a broken leg, facial laceration, and other non-life threatening injuries.  The accident remains under investigation by the Dover Police Department’s Accident Reconstruction Unit.
