I seem to remember another one about six months ago.
From the end of the article:

In August 2006, an Albuquerque, N.M., police officer in President Bush's motorcade died in a motorcycle crash. Germaine Casey, 40, died on Aug. 27 when he crashed as Bush returned to the airport after a fundraiser for Sen. Pete Domenici, R-N.M.

In November 2006, Honolulu police Officer Steve Favela died when he and two other motorcycle officers crashed while part of a presidential motorcade.

You may be thinking of the motorcyclist who crashed while passing Michelle Obama's motorcade.

Re: Officer Down!

I read some where that he had only been on motors for a month. When we have new guy like that they do not do escort until they have had a couple of miles under their belt. In escort like that the new guy rides in a position to observer the escort ie up front. May do two or three before they become a leap frog element. And I do not want to second guess what happened, just saw that he was on the motor unit for only a month. Sad day.
