Texas Police Officer Dies In Motorcycle Escort

Metropolitan Transit Authority (TX) Police Officer Elias “Sonny” Martinez succumbed to injuries sustained in a motorcycle crash one week earlier while escorting permitted loads on Gulf Freeway, in the area of FM 646, in League City, Texas.

He was passing the trucks in the escorted convoy when he laid his motorcycle down in an attempt to avoid a collision. He struck the rear of one of the trucks, causing him to suffer severe injuries. He was flown to Hermann Memorial Hospital where he remained until succumbing to his injuries on September 17th, 2017.

Officer Martinez had served his community for 25 years. He is survived by his wife and two children.

Police Chief Vera Bumpers called Martinez “a very special person who will be missed greatly.”
