An off-duty police officer was killed last night when the motorcycle he was riding was struck by an SUV making a U-turn at the intersection of Avenue J and Rockaway Parkway in Brooklyn.

The accident occurred around 7:30pm. Police at the scene were unable to divulge the identity of the officer pending family notification. However, a police spokesperson confirmed that the officer was assigned to the 59th Precinct out of the Brooklyn North division.

The person driving the SUV was identified as an off-duty NYPD School Safety Agent.

The off-duty police officer was taken to Brookdale Hospital where he later died from his injuries. The off-duty school agent was not charged in the accident.

The off-duty officer is the third off-duty cop to die while riding a motorcycle. Officer Curtis Johnson was killed back in June in Jamaica, Queens when the motorcycle he was riding slammed into a vehicle, throwing him into the air and killing him. Two weeks later, NYPD Detective Paul Lipka died after a vehicle cut off the motorcycle he was riding, causing him to slam into it.

This latest tragedy comes on the heels of another tragic loss for the NYPD. Officer Brian Moore, 25, died on Monday after being shot in the face by an ex-con.

The investigation into the motorcycle accident is ongoing.
