LAGUNA BEACH, Calif. (AP) - A 41-year-old Laguna Beach police officer has died when his motorcycle crashed into a pickup truck. Police say Officer Jon Coutchie was born in Tucson.
Investigators say he was driving on Pacific Coast Highway late Saturday after responding to a call of a speeding motorist when he collided with the truck. He died at the scene.
Coutchie had been an officer for the past four year after serving in the Army from 2003 to 2007. He was deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. His death is the department's first line-of-duty death since 1953. The crash remains under investigation by the California Highway Patrol.
