RIO RANCHO, N.M. — In the time it takes for just a glance, the Rio Rancho motorcycle police officer killed in the Aug. 27 motorcade of President Bush missed his chance to safely navigate a turn.
According to the Albuquerque Police Department's final report on the crash that killed Rio Rancho police Officer Germaine Casey, 40, the experienced rider was attempting to pass at a safe distance in front of the president's limousine when he topped a hill and saw another motorcycle officer stopped on the side of the road with a pedestrian.
