Way to set a good example there, Officer.
Troopers say distracted driving was a possible cause for a Raymore bicyclist being struck by a Peculiar police officer Thursday evening.
Cyclist Joe Fasanello was waiting at a stop sign when Officer Charles Wallace took a sharp turn in his department-issued SUV and hit him head-on. His GoPro camera on his helmet caught the whole wreck. He flew to the ground and was in serious pain, but later stood up.
In the video, the officer admitted he was looking at his phone.
Fasanello was scraped up and sore but not seriously hurt. He refused treatment at the scene. He has some bumps and bruises and was out of work on Friday. As for his bicycle, the front wheel is knocked out of alignment and it appears the frame is cracked.
