Motorcycle deputy seriously injured after being struck by a wood pallet IN Florida Keys

Two Monroe County Sheriff’s Office motorcycle deputies were injured — one seriously — after a pallet of wood flew off a passing pickup truck and hit them Thursday morning in Lower Matecumbe Key.

One of the deputies, Darren Jensen, 27, suffered a significant leg injury from the wood and had to be airlifted to Ryder Trauma Center in Miami for treatment, said Florida Highway Patrol Lt. Kathleen McKinney. The other deputy, Greg Korzen, 43, was taken to Mariners Hospital in Tavernier for treatment, but his injuries were not as severe as the one suffered by his colleague.
