WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Wichita police say the crash that killed a 37-year-old off-duty officer has also claimed the life of his 9-year-old son.

Police say the crash happened around 8:15 p.m. Friday when a pickup truck pulled out in front of a motorcycle operated by Officer Stacy Woodson. The officer’s son was riding on the back of the bike.

The 35-year-old driver of the truck has been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence.

Police Lt. Tim Myers says Braeden Woodson died as a result of the injuries he suffered in the crash.

Woodson was a 16-year veteran of the Wichita Police Department.
