A Basehor police officer remains in the hospital recovering from serious injuries he suffered during an accident.

Officer Cory Havner was off duty and on his way home from work Sept. 12 when he was involved in the crash, which took place in the city of Leavenworth, according to Basehor Police Chief Bob Pierce.

Pierce said the Basehor Police Department has been accepting donations to help Havner and his family.

Havner was on a motorcycle at the time of the crash, which occurred in the area of Fifth Avenue and Ohio Street. He had stopped in traffic as the driver in front of him was waiting to make a left turn. Another vehicle rear-ended Havner’s motorcycle, according to Maj. Dan Nicodemus, deputy chief of the Leavenworth Police Department.

Havner, who was wearing a helmet, suffered a head injury and other injuries.

Pierce said Havner has been in intensive care.

Pierce said it is too early to say when Havner may be able to return to duty.

Havner has been a member of the Basehor Police Department for seven years.

The accident was reported at 5:11 p.m. Sept. 12.

Pierce said Havner ordinarily would be at work at that time.

“He works evenings,” Pierce said.

Havner had a different work schedule that day because he was finishing three days of training.

Pierce said the Basehor Police Department has been accepting donations for Havner and his family at Basehor City Hall, 2620 155th St.

He said people also dropped off donations Friday night during a high school football game in Basehor.

Basehor-Linwood High School played a home game against Leavenworth High School.

Pierce said others have initiated separate efforts to collect donations to support Havner.

Someone has set up a fundraising page on the GoFundMe website, which can be found at www.gofundme.com/cory-havner-and-family

According to the GoFundMe page, Havner has a wife and three daughters.
