Cause: Motorcycle accident
Officer Thomas Morash was killed when his motorcycle struck a vehicle when he was responding to a call of a minor traffic accident.
As he was driving south on Dixie Highway, a woman driving a Honda Civic turned into Officer Morash's path. The impact catapulted Officer Morash from the seat of his 2003 Harley-Davidson Road King onto the pavement. Officer Morash was removed to St. Mary's Medical Center where he died from his injuries.
The driver of the Honda was arrested and charged with driving without a valid driver license, causing a death, and violating the right of way. She was later sentenced to seven year probation, but was re-sentenced to 7 years in prison after violating her probation.
Officer Morash had served with the West Palm Beach Police Department for 12 years, and had previously served with the Fort Pierce Police Department. He is survived by his wife, daughter, parents, three brothers, and three sisters.
