Cops deliver pizza after Pizza Hut driver hurt in crash

PORTLAND, Ore. — Police officers often deliver citations, and in urgent circumstances they’ve been known to deliver a baby. Now, here comes pizza.

When a Pizza Hut driver hurt his neck and back in a crash earlier this month, two Portland Police Bureau officers heard him call his boss, and they offered to finish the delivery for him.

Steve Huckins says he and his wife were a little worried when Officers Michael Filbert and Royce Curtiss showed up at the door Sept. 1, but when they heard the whole story, they broke out laughing.

It turns out the Huckinses had been about to tuck into the Hawaiian pie that a Pizza Hut manager, making double sure of delivery, brought after they contacted him to see about their order.

In possession of two pizzas, Huckins made a point of getting a picture, in case there was any skepticism about how the second arrived.

“They turn around to leave, and I said, ‘whoa, whoa, whoa — I got to get a picture of this,’” he told KOIN-TV. “No one is going to believe Portland police delivering a pizza.”

He sent the photo on to a police spokesman, Sgt. Pete Simpson. A tweet followed, and the pizza patrol was duly recognized.

The delivery driver is reportedly recovering but not yet back on duty.
