Rider Down

We worked together for over 30 years and I was with him on this ride. The hardest thing I had to do was hold Pat and his son Special Agent Michael Klingenschmidt at the hospital. Lt. Stanley Klingenschmidt will be missed. Please pray for his family and his LEO family.

Veteran Officer Dies During Motorcycle Ride for Charity

A charity motorcycle ride for Special Olympics turned tragic today when a veteran police officer participating died in a one-vehicle accident.

Stanley Klingenschmidt, a 27-year veteran of the Southern Pines police department and avid motorcycle rider, was involved in a single vehicle wreck while leading a group of motorcycle riders through Montgomery County.

Klingenschmidt, 58, worked as a part-time patrol officer and conducted special investigations for the office of the chief of police. The State Highway Patrol is investigating. He had previously reached the rank of lieutenant within the department before retiring a few years ago.

The ride began in Pinehurst around 10 a.m. The accident occurred around 11 a.m., according to a news release from the Southern Pines Police.

"Each of us at the Southern Pines Police Department not only grieves at the passing of a tremendous individual but also for the loss his family suffers," the release said.

Funeral arrangements have not been made.

To honor Klingenschmidt, the flags in front of the Southern Pines Police department were lowered, and a police car with a black ribbon draped over the length of the vehicle was parked in front of the department near the street.

Southern Pines lowered its flags to half staff and parked this cruiser in front of the department to honor long-time officer Stanley Klingenschmidt, who died today while participating in a motorcycle ride for Special Olympics.

Re: Rider Down

A great loss for those who knew him. A greater loss for those who never had the chance.

Re: Rider Down

Thanks everybody for the kind words.

Stanley was in charge of the intersection security and was attempting to get ahead of the group. On a two lane country road after making a sharpe left hand curve. On the straight away, for reasons unknown Stanley ran off the right side going down a embankment striking a wooden fence. The air flight was called and they were in the process of loading him up. When his heart stopped and at that point he was rushed to a local hospital. The staff did all they could but he had too much internal injuries.

Stanley was a Cops " COP". The LEO will understand what I'm saying.
RIP Stanley EOW 06-15-13
