Recently, hundreds of bikers gathered to honor a fallen officer and fellow motorcyclist. Sgt. David Baldwin, a 27-year veteran of the Sheriff’s Department and leader of the traffic enforcement motorcycle unit, was killed in a head-on collision in January while riding on Highway 93.
The MC-1 Honor Run, named after the Baldwin’s radio call sign, set out from Columbine High School in Littleton to honor his memory, and all proceeds went to benefit the Baldwin family.
“We felt [the memorial ride] was important because of his contribution not only to public safety but to our organization,” said Jefferson County Sheriff Ted Mink, a good friend of the deceased.
The man suspected of hitting Officer Baldwin is an 83-year-old citizen of Colorado with a history of bad driving habits. Kenneth Hosch had his license revoked after prosecutors submitted an affidavit detailing numerous traffic violations, including five speeding tickets in seven years and rear-ending two cars in three years. Hosch is currently facing charges of vehicular homicide and criminally negligent homicide.
