Two Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s deputies and one Sulphur Police captain  who were injured escorting President Trump’s motorcade Tuesday have each received presidential challenge coins and a set of cuff links.

It happened around 1:50 p.m. when the two CPSO motorcycles escorting the presidential motorcade crashed on I-210 westbound near mile marker 11, officials said. 

Sr. Cpls. Roy Jones, Jr. and Jason Hayes were both transported to the hospital by ambulance. Capt. Matt Cheaney, an 11-year veteran of the Sulphur police force, was also injured.

“We are pleased to say they will both make a full recovery; one was released from the hospital yesterday and the other is still in the hospital awaiting another surgery.”

Lucas Allmon, with the White House Medical Unit, presented all three officers with the Presidential Challenge Coin and a set of cuff links.
