Thomas Joseph Morash

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, between Monroe Drive and Kenilworth Boulevard, 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 transported 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-years probation but was re-sentenced to seven 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.

Motor Officer Thomas Morash, I was friends with your brother Robert back in elementary school in Merrick, NY. I remember you being about 3 or 4 years old when I moved to FL. I too, became a Motor Officer. As Police Week 2021 approaches I thought of you and your family. My prayers and thoughts are with them. Rest In Peace, Brother! Your service and dedication will never be forgotten.
