Remembering Baltimore Police Officer Craig Chandler, A Hero Never Forgotten
Police Officer Craig Chandler succumbed to injuries sustained two months earlier when he was involved in a crash during a pursuit of a moped.
He and other officers were attempting to detain a group of individuals who were riding dirt bikes, which are illegal to operate in the city. One of the people they were attempting to detain was picked up on a moped which then fled the scene. Both the moped and the patrol car Officer Chandler was riding in struck a utility pole on the 2200 block of Kirk Avenue.
Officer Chandler was transported to a local hospital with severe injuries. He remained in the hospital until succumbing to his injuries on January 9th, 2015.
