2 Motorcycle Officers Hurt in Crash on Silver Strand

Two police motorcycles collided on the only route into Coronado from Imperial Beach early Monday, causing delays for morning commuters.

The crash happened just before 8 a.m. along Silver Strand Boulevard just two blocks south of Hotel del Coronado.

Two San Diego police motorcycle officers were taking part in a VIP motorcade when one motorcycle hit the tail end of the second motorcycle. Both officers were transported to UCSD with minor injuries.

“It’s a little more personal. They’re like family to us. So it’s a little harder coming to a collision involving your own guys,” said SDPD Sgt. Victoria Houseman.

No word on what caused the crash or if the officer who hit the other could face consequences.

The location of the crash is near Naval Amphibious Base Coronado and north of Silver Strand State Beach.
