BRISTOL, PA.-- Police officers in Bristol Township helped an injured fellow officer by tearing up his home.
A half-dozen members of the force spent the weekend making Officer Mark Buzby’s home wheelchair accessible.
Buzby, 36, and his partner, Officer Michael Egan, 29, were injured Aug. 27 when a driver in a minivan slammed into them, pinning them against their patrol car. The two had been investigating an accident when they were injured.
The accident broke Buzby’s legs in several places, and doctors had to amputate Egan’s left leg below the knee.
Officers enlarged the door frames in the first-floor bedroom and bathroom of the Buzby’s home in Falls, Bucks County.
A plumber is scheduled to install a new shower with handrails, said officer Christian Phillips.
Local stores donated materials to help officers complete the job, Phillips said.
Once Buzby’s house is completed, they’ll start working on Egan’s house. He is expected to come home from the hospital in the next few weeks.
