    So the person passed a funeral procession and hit the officer. There should be a citation for both.

    "a vehicle pulled in front of the officer" and "his motorcycle was struck by a car" seem like sentences that are at odds with each other.

    I'm guessing the car pulled out in front of the officer and the officer hit the car? So many articles on WRAL are as clear as mud.
