Funeral procession today for D.C. officer
A funeral procession will be held Thursday afternoon for a D.C. police officer who died after a car crash Oct. 30.
Officer Paul Dittamo, 32, was responding to a call when the car he was driving crashed into a utility pole, police said. He was later pronounced dead at a hospital.
Dittamo is the first D.C. police officer to die in the line of duty since 2007.
The funeral procession for Dittamo, who joined the police force in June 2009, will depart St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church in Lake Ridge about 12:30 p.m. for the District, police said. The procession will travel pass the 7th District police station where Dittamo was assigned and then return to Virginia to the burial site in Manassas.
Expect street closures along the route.
