Funeral Wednesday for police officer killed in off-duty accident

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A San Diego police officer, who was killed in a motorcycle accident, will be laid to rest Wednesday.

Twenty-six-year-old Chris Blakeley was killed Wednesday, August 24 while off-duty. He slammed his motorcycle into a pickup truck in Palm City. Two people in the truck were not seriously hurt.

Fellow officers say Blakely had a bright future, he was pursuing a degree and was an optimistic police officer.

"I don't think anyone ever saw Chris in a bad mood, and I don't think he ever had a negative word to say," said Lt. Debbie Farrar with the San Diego Police Department.

The service is scheduled for 9 a.m. at the Lighthouse Christian Fellowship in Chula Vista.
