In a rare move, the Ontario Provincial Police Association has set-up a trust account to help Constable Peter Tucker and his family.
Tucker was the motorcycle officer who was seriously injured just over a week ago when he was escorting a motorcade at the Highway 11 and the Highway 400 split.
He was part of a training exercise and hit a goose and crashed.
The OPP association says its received thousands of calls from people wanting to help and that’s why it has set up the account.
Constable Tucker remains in critical condition at Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto. He had multiple injuries and had to have a leg amputated.
