A Capitol Police sergeant was killed in a motorcycle crash Wednesday afternoon in Wakulla County, according to Keith Blackmar a spokesman for the Wakulla County Sheriff’s Office.

Glenn Lewis Edrington, 49, of Crawfordville, was traveling north on County Road 61 near Cajer Posey Road as a Nissan Titan began making a left turn onto Cajer Posey Road.

According to Florida Highway Patrol, the Nissan Titan driven by Aaron Scott Davis, 35, also of Crawfordville, traveled into the northbound lane striking the left front of the motorcycle driven by Edrington. Edrington was killed in the crash, while Davis sustained no injuries.

Edrington was off duty during the accident, according to a statement from FDLE Commissioner Gerald M. Bailey, which was sent out to all members of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.

Edrington was a sergeant with Capitol Police, part of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. Sgt. Edrington joined Capitol Police in January of 1988 as a security officer, said FDLE communication director Gretl Plessinger.

He rose to law enforcement officer in 1996, and was one of the first members of the Capitol Police bike squad. He was promoted to sergeant in 2005 where he oversaw the bike squad and the Reserve Law Enforcement Officer Program.

“Law enforcement jobs are always demanding,” Commissioner Bailey said in the statement. “Take time today to support and appreciate your family and fellow FDLE members.”
