Police Officer Gregg Maloney was killed in a motorcycle crash on Samoset Street, near Pilgrim Trail, while on patrol with another motor officer at approximately 3:00 pm.
He was flown to Mass General Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries a short time later.

PLYMOUTH (CBS) – A Plymouth police officer who was injured in a motorcycle crash Tuesday afternoon has died. The crash happened on Samoset Street at about 2:15 p.m.

The officer has been identified as 43-year-old Gregg Maloney, a 17-year veteran of the Plymouth Police Department. Plymouth Police Chief Michael Botieri says Maloney joined the motorcycle unit in 2009. He was married, with two teenaged boys.

Officer Maloney, who was on duty at the time, was traveling westbound on Samoset when he was somehow knocked off his motorcycle. The motorcycle came to a rest about a quarter mile down the road.

“There was no obvious reason for the bike to go down,” Chief Botieri said Tuesday night. “There was no other vehicles involved.”

Officer Maloney was in serious condition when he was taken to Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital in Plymouth. He was later transported to Mass General Hospital in Boston by medical helicopter where he was pronounced dead.

State Police are assisting with the crash investigation.

“The @MassStatePolice offer sincere condolences to the Family of Officer Gregg Maloney & our brothers and sisters at the Plymouth PD,” State Police Colonel Timothy Alben wrote in a tweet.

Fellow officers escorted Maloney’s body from MGH to the medical examiner’s office. Many local departments lined the street to salute the fallen officer.

Plymouth Police Chief Michael Botieri said Officer Gregg Maloney was 43 and had been with the department for 17 years. Chief Botieri says doesn’t think the two officers collided, that Officer Maloney somehow managed to lose control of his motorcycle, no other vehicles were involved and reconstruction teams are still investigating. Chief Botieri adds that Officer Maloney had two teenage sons, was a family man, worked hard and was liked by all.
