TACOMA (AP) — The King County sheriff’s office says a deputy injured in an off-duty motorcycle crash on Monday night has died.
Deputy Martin Duran, 47, died Wednesday night at Tacoma General Hospital, said Sheriff’s Sgt. Cindi West.
The News Tribune says Pierce County sheriff’s officers continue to investigate the crash near Frederickson.
West says Duran served in the Army and then became a paramedic and firefighter in New Mexico. He became a deputy for the Valencia County Sheriff’s Office in New Mexico, and in 2004 started working for King County.
