A police officer on Vice President Kamala Harris’ detail was seriously injured in the Seattle area Tuesday afternoon.

According to the Washington State Patrol, at approximately 1:54 pm, 39-year-old Kevin Bereta sustained multiple injuries after what Bellevue Police described as "an incident" where he was ejected off his motorcycle, which caused him to fall between 50-60' off the Michigan St. on-ramp onto the southbound lanes of I-5. Officer Bereta was riding as part of the Vice President’s motorcade during her Seattle visit when the accident occurred.

Traffic was stopped on I-5 while the injured officer was transported to Harborview Medical Center. The freeway re-opened around 4 pm local time.

According to the Bellevue Police Department, the officer was conscious and alert while being transported. Sources told The Post Millennial that the officer suffered a dislocated knee, a broken pelvis, and a broken shoulder.

Officer Bereta joined the Bellevue Police Department in January 2018 and transferred to the Traffic Division as a motorcycle officer in 2020.

The Washington State Patrol is investigating the incident.

On Thursday, Officer Bereta was released from the ICU in stable condition.

VP Harris visited the area for the second time since she took office to fundraise for the Biden Victory Fund’s 2024 re-election campaign and to discuss climate change to mark the one-year anniversary of President Joe Biden signing the Inflation Reduction Act. According to the Bellevue Police Department, "Vice President Kamala Harris called Bellevue Police Chief Wendell Shirley to check on Officer Bereta and to express her concern for him and his family."
