County officials reported that the officer had been traveling to work around 1 p.m on his 2009 Harley Davidson, when a 2002 Ford Focus pulled out of a Loch Raven’s Presbyterian Church parking lot, and almost collided with the police motorcyclist. The officer landed the motorcycle on its side to avoid the crash, but was then launched into the driver’s side of the car.
Police reported to the scene of the accident on the 9300 block of Old Harford Road, where the injured officer laid in the road in front of the car. 42-year-old officer, Jeffrey Neral, was transported by the County Fire Department emergency services to Good Samaritan Hospital to be treated for his life-threatening injuries.
