FISHERS, Ind. -- As Fishers Police Department Officer Binh Dennis continues to be hospitalized after an off-duty motorcycle crash, a fund has been established to help with his family's financial issues.

Dennis and his wife were riding their 2016 Harley Davidson motorcycle at about noon on Oct. 6 when it left the road and struck a tree along SR 135 in Brown County. Dennis was airlifted to an Indianapolis hospital in critical condition, where he remains, as of Oct. 10, police say. Dennis' wife was also hospitalized from the crash, but she has been released.

Dennis' medical team has performed multiple surgeries to save his life over the past week. 

To help pay for the medical costs, his family has established a fundraising link, allowing people to make donations to help during the recovery.

All donations are tax-deductible and when made through the foundation, will prevent tax liability to the family. The Fishers Police Department warns that some people may try to set up fake fundraising links, but the only legitimate one is through the Central Indiana Police Foundation.

Dennis is a 9-year veteran with the Fishers Police Department. He currently serves in the patrol division and previously served as a member of the SWAT team.
