Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck, diehard motocross racer, crashed while trail riding in the Tehachapi Mountains north of Los Angles on Saturday. He was riding with some friends when he fell on a rocky trail and fractured his pelvis. He remounted his bike and rode back to his truck, then drove himself to the hospital. Beck became the Los Angles Police Chief in 2009, but refused to give up racing motocross and is often seen racing at SoCal’s local tracks. He says that he will be able to get back to work almost immediately.
