A motorcycle police officer who was part of President Barack Obama’s motorcade to a campaign event in Florida died Sunday after being struck by a pickup truck.

Officer Bruce St. Laurent, 55, was a 20-year veteran of the Jupiter Police Department and one of several officers from agencies across Palm Beach County helping with security for the president’s visit.

He was ahead of the motorcade on Interstate 95 preparing to shut down the highway as part of a rolling roadblock when he was hit by the Ford F-150, Palm Beach County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Teri Barbera said. He was taken to nearby St. Mary’s Medical Center and was pronounced dead.
