Fundraiser Underway to Help Officers Injured in Adams Morgan

July 7, 2017

On June 8th, Brandon Figures-Mormon got behind the steering wheel of his pickup truck in Adams Morgan, veered around a stopped Metro bus and sped onto a median, striking two uniformed D.C. police officers and a city transportation worker. The incident was widely reported (read Washington Post article).

What I think is lesser known if that the two officers struck by the truck were seriously injured. In checking with MPD and beat officers in Adams Morgan recently, I was able to get an update on their condition. One of the officers has been released from care and is undergoing  physical therapy. The other is still hospitalized and with significant injuries.

To help the two injured officers, the FOP Auxiliary, DC Police Union, and the entire greater DC law enforcement community have set up a GoFundMe page to raise money to support the officers and their families as they face months and possibly years of tough recovery and rehabilitation.

The fundraising goal is $50,000 to be split between the two injured officers and families. Anyone is welcome to participate at https://www.gofundme.com/fund-for-2-dc-officers-injured-68
