Everyone Who Saw The Crash Stopped To Take A Picture But Not To Help.
During a presidential caravan back to Air Force One Officer Robert Turner crashed his motorcycle sending the officer sliding along highway i-70 in Indianapolis. As the officer lay obviously injured, onlookers stopped to take photos but not to render any assistance to the officer. Blue Lives Matter reported that the cause of the accident is still unclear.
After the incident, the President had to know if the officer was OK and delayed his flight, refusing to take off, waiting to hear the news. During a short call with Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) Trump’s call was transferred to Turner’s cell phone.
When rescuers arrived, Officer Turner was placed in a neck brace and rushed to the hospital. While Turner lay on a gurney, obviously in bad shape, he received a surprise call from the Commander and Chief. The heartwarming moment was caught on another officer’s cellphone and shared by the department, seen below.

As Reported By Edmund DeMarche With Fox News.
The White House initially said Trump called during the flight back to Washington to check on the officer’s condition and thank him for his service.
Trump was in the city to push his so-called “middle-class miracle,” and sell his plan to overhaul the nation’s tax code and revive his legislative agenda.
“This is a revolutionary change and the biggest winners will be the everyday American workers as jobs start pouring into our country, as companies start competing for American labor, and as wages start going up at levels that you haven’t seen in many years,” Trump told supporters at the Indiana State Fairgrounds.
