A Binghamton police officer and former officer were killed in a motorcycle accident Sunday night.

Binghamton Police Officer Katie Brown, 28, and former officer Christopher Stoeckel, 35, were both killed shortly after 10 p.m. Sunday night.

Although the accident is still under investigation, it is believed that Stoeckel was driving the motorcycle and Brown was a passenger. Stoeckel lost control and hit the guard rail, ejecting both riders. Speed may have been a factor.

Stoeckel was pronounced dead at the scene. Brown was transported to Wilson Hospital where she was pronounced dead shortly after.
