An off-duty Henrico police officer died today when his motorcycle was struck by an SUV in the 2200 block of John Rolfe Parkway in Short Pump.
Thirty-five year-old Thomas P. Berry, Jr., an eight-year officer with the county, was traveling west on Ridgefield Parkway near John Rolfe Parkway at about 2:40 p.m., when an SUV exited the John Rolfe Commons Shopping Center. Berry's motorcycle struck the side of the SUV. He was transported to VCU Medical Center, where he died as the result of his injuries.
The driver of the SUV was treated at St. Mary's Hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening, according to police. An investigation into the incident is underway; no charges have been filed.
