Charges could be filed after crash with police officer

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - We could find out today if there will be any charges filed after a crash that killed an off-duty Henrico police officer.

Officer Thomas Berry, Jr. was killed in a motorcycle crash in the 2200 block of John Rolfe Parkway, near Ridgefield Parkway.

Police tell us that an SUV was leaving the John Rolfe Commons Shopping Center when Officer Berry, riding his motorcycle down John Rolfe Parkway, hit the side of the SUV.

He was taken to VCU Medical Center, where he died.

His sister talked to NBC12 over the phone just hours after learning about her brother's tragic death.

"He was amazing. He would have given you the shirt off his back. He was caring. He loved his four beautiful children and his wife."

Officer Berry was 35-year-old and had been on the force for eight years. He was just married last September.

He leaves behind a wife and four children.
