On September 21st, 2023, officer Winston was riding his motorcycle off-duty and was involved in an accident, resulting in major injuries. He was transported to the hospital where it was discovered that his pelvis bone was broken/fractured on the left side and shifted upwards from its correct location. He also tore his meniscus, ACL and MCL. Officer Winston had surgery the same day of the accident for the pelvis and will still need surgery for his knee. Due to this incident and his major medical injuries, he has depleted all his available sick time and leave hours and is not expected to return to full-duty for a year.
