OVERLAND, Mo. (AP) - What was supposed to be a joyous day turned into tragedy for a suburban St. Louis police officer and his girlfriend.

KSDK-TV (https://on.ksdk.com/2eZZMd8 ) reports that Overland officer Shaun Terry planned to proposed to his girlfriend, Holly Williamson, on a dirt bike track on Oct. 15. Both are avid dirt bike riders.

Terry and a friend of the couple planned to pretend there was a bike malfunction. He was going to give her the ring when she came over to help.

But just moments before the surprise would have taken place, Williamson crashed. She was airlifted to a hospital with a spine injury, a fractured skull and other injuries. Her prognosis is uncertain because, more than a week later, she remains sedated.
