A Palm Beach Sheriff's Deputy Has Been Hospitalized After Getting Trapped Beneath His Motorcycle
Richard Ragali was off-duty and riding to Key West with several other deputies when they stopped Friday to get gas in Marathon.
The Florida Highway Patrol says Ragali’s bike fell, igniting a fuel puddle left on the ground from a previous customer. The fire quickly spread to a minivan nearby, but the two toddlers inside were saved before it reached their car seats.
The 53-year-old Ragali suffered burns over 50 to 60 percent of his body.
