Motorcycle crash claims the life of off-duty Marion County deputy

At about 7:30 on the evening of April 20, 2014, Indiana State Police Trooper Justin Geltmaker was dispatched to a motorcycle crash in the 8900 block of Acton Road, on the south side of Indianapolis.

Preliminary investigation indicates that off-duty Marion County Sheriff’s Department Deputy Eric W. Stofer, 35, of Indianapolis, was riding a Sliver 2002 Suzuki motorcycle when he struck a pothole as he was driving south on Acton Road, just south of Maze Creek Road. This resulted in loss of control of the motorcycle, which crashed and came to rest on top of Deputy Stofer. No one else was riding on the motorcycle with Deputy Stofer and no other vehicles were involved in the crash.

For the Love of Dixie Benefit Ride

For The Love of Dixie is a benefit ride and dinner we have set up for our dear friend, Dixie Lewis. She was diagnosed with complete renal failure over 4 years ago and has been on dialysis treaments. She is still awaiting a kidney. Even after her diagnosis, she continues to work full time at Danville Community High School. She could easily quit but loves her job. I am sure that everyone knows that having any type of medical treatment or condition is not cheap, especially long term. This benefit ride and dinner is planned to help raise money for this wonderful family to help them with any expenses they have. So PLEASE pass this ride/dinner information on to as many people as you can. Let’s make this a GREAT success and enjoy a great day/night together to CELEBRATE Dixie and her family.
