A veteran NYPD highway officer from Elmont and a married father of five was tragically killed early Thursday in a motorcycle crash as he rode to work on the Laurelton Parkway in Queens.
Officer Marc St. Arromand, 42, was pronounced dead at a hospital after his motorcycle was upended on the highway adjacent to 132nd Street in the Laurelton section. Investigators believe St. Arromand’s motorcycle may have struck debris on the pavement before the crash.
St. Arromand worked with the NYPD's Highway Unit No. 2, which patrols roadways in Brooklyn and is based at a central location on Flatbush Avenue.
The veteran officer joined the NYPD in 2005, according to department officials.
Arromand assisted the Jewish community many times, including just last week providing an escort at the funeral of the Skulener Rebbe attended by more than 50,000.
