On the night of Tuesday, November 2nd, 2021, Police Officer Tim Thrane of the 7th Precinct was dispatched to a motor vehicle collision on William Floyd Parkway. Just around midnight after arriving on scene, Officer Thrane was setting up road flares to provide a safe and protective area when another vehicle, unrelated to the original collision, struck Officer Thrane at a high rate of speed before colliding into his patrol vehicle. Officer Thrane was pinned under the vehicle before being removed and rushed to Stony Brook Hospital via helicopter in serious condition. The driver of the vehicle which struck Officer Thrane also sustained serious injuries and was later charged with Driving While Intoxicated.
Tim sustained life-threatening injuries and was rushed into surgery to stop a large brain bleed amongst other major injuries but luckily, doctors were able to stabilize the bleed to save his life.
We kindly ask to help Officer Thrane and his family in their time of need by donating to this fundraiser set up by Law Enforcement Officers Weekend, where all proceeds go directly to the Thrane family.
Tim is not only a police officer, he’s a loving husband to his wife Janelle, and a beautiful father to his three children: Timothy (11), Jonathan (5) and Tessa (3). His family’s world has been turned upside down from this horrific incident. Tim has always given his all to help protect others, it’s now our turn to help Tim. This fundraiser will be used to help Tim and his family over the next few weeks and months while he recovers from his injuries. All proceeds will go directly to Tim, never touched by anyone else. Please consider donating to the cause!
