The commanding officer of the NYPD Cadet Corps was killed Monday morning when his motorcycle collided with a truck in The Bronx, authorities said.
Inspector Michael McGrath, 56, was off-duty when the crash happened on East Tremont Avenue in Pelham Bay shortly before 8 a.m. He was rushed to a nearby hospital, where doctors pronounced him dead.
The truck’s driver remained on scene, and the investigation is ongoing, authorities said.
The Cadet Corps is a department training program that pays academic students while they prepare to enter the police force after graduation.
