Good father, good son, good cop.
These six words became a litany Sunday night as friends described Michael C. Weigand, 25, a part-time sergeant with Latimore Township,PA Police Department and full-time patrolman with Eastern Adams Regional Police Department.
The son of Latimore Police Chief Michael E. Weigand, Weigand died Sunday morning when the 2000 Kawasaki police motorcycle he was riding was hit by a Ford F-250 truck during a benefit ride of the Blue Knights, an international motorcycle club for law enforcement officers, to raise money for Latimore Township Park.
The driver of the truck, Earl M. Wright, 43, of 165 Gothier Lane, Grantville, was following another vehicle east on state route 234 when the vehicle slowed down for a marked police vehicle approaching in the westbound lane. Police said Wright did not see the vehicle slow down, applied the brakes, lost control of the truck and skidded across the road into the westbound lane where it hit Weigand.
