LAS VEGAS, Nevada – An on-duty Las Vegas Metro Police officer suffered head injuries and a broken wrist Saturday night after he was ejected from his police motorcycle when a suspected drunk driver ran a red light and pulled in front of the motorcycle on Lake Mead Boulevard near Simmons Street, according to a report by KLAS TV Las Vegas.
Metro Police officer Michael Conteras was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment of his injuries sustained in the Las Vegas motorcycle accident.
Police arrested the driver, Jack Bradford, 45, of Washington, Utah on charges of driving under the influence of alcohol, a red light violation and failure to yield oncoming traffic. Bradford was also found to be driving on a canceled or suspended driver’s license without insurance or valid vehicle registration.
“Fortunately, police have taken one more dangerous driver off of our streets here in Las Vegas,” said Attorney West Seegmiller. “Drivers such as Mr. Brandford are indeed a risk to society, however, my heart goes out to Mr. Conteras and his family who are victims of this man’s negligence.”
