Off-duty Fishers police officer Binh Dennis and his wife Mary were injured following a motorcycle crash Oct. 6 on Ind. 135 in Brown County.
The crash occurred shortly before noon when, according to a press release from the Fishers Police Dept., the Dennis’ 2016 Harley Davidson motorcycle left the roadway and hit a tree.
Mary was transported to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, and Binh was airlifted to an Indianapolis hospital with potential life-threatening injuries. He remains in critical condition, and his long-term prognosis is unknown. Mary has since been released from the hospital.
Dennis’ medical team has since performed several life-saving surgeries, with hopes they also will provide him with the best quality of life.
The Brown County Sheriff’s Dept. is still investigating the crash.
Dennis has served the Fishers community for more than 15 years, and he has worked with the FPD for nine years. He currently serves on the patrol division and has served on the SWAT team in the past. Dennis served as a firefighter with Fishers Fire Dept. for six years prior to joining the FPD. He and Mary have been together for 27 years and have two children.
