TUCSON, Ariz. — An off-duty Tucson police officer has been killed in a motorcycle crash.
Acting police chief of staff Capt. Michael Gillooly says the accident happened Sunday morning in midtown Tucson when the driver of a car made a left turn in front of officer Joseph Patrick Olguin.
The 52-year-old officer was in uniform and on his way home from an off-duty job on his personal motorcycle when he was struck just after 10 a.m. He was pronounced dead at a hospital about an hour later. He was not wearing a helmet.
The female driver of the car was not impaired but was issued a citation for failing to yield.
Gillooly says Olguin was a patrol officer assigned to the mid-town division and had more than 20 years on the force.
