Honolulu officer injured during President's visit dies

The Associated Press

HONOLULU- Police officers across Hawaii will be placing black bands across their badges after the death yesterday of a Honolulu motorcycle officer injured last week while escorting President Bush in the islands.

Thirty-year-old Officer Steve Favela died at about a quarter after eleven Sunday morning.

Bush offered his condolences Sunday to Favela's family and fellow officers.

Favela and two other officers crashed their cycles as the presidential motorcade was traveling across Hickam Air Force Base to meet troops for breakfast early Tuesday. The other officers were treated at The Queen's Medical Center and released.

Bush had spent the night on the base on his way back from a trip to Indonesia and Vietnam.

Favela, an eight-year veteran of the Honolulu Police Department and father of four, had suffered internal injuries and had been listed in critical condition at the medical center.
