WASHINGTON (CIRCA) -- A police officer in Miami has been killed after losing control of his ATV and hitting a tree, WPLG reports.
The officer was reportedly transferred to a hospital but died from his injuries. Miami-Dade Police have not named the officer but confirmed he is a father of children.
"We stand united with the family and the children of the officer," Miami-Dade Police Director Juan Perez told Circa partner WPLG. "We're down on a knee right know, bended knee, but we'll stand up again for the officer and his family, and we'll continue to support them."
The officer was alongside two of his co-workers who were also on patrol when the incident happened.
