On October 17, 2003, Officer Thomas Morash was killed when his motorcycle struck a vehicle as he was responding to a call of a 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 taken 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. Officer Morash served the West Palm Beach Police Department since 1996, and previously served with the Fort Pierce Police Department. He is survived by his wife and daughter.
