According to the Sheriff’s spokeswoman the Jupiter police officer St. Laurent was assigned to the presidential motorcade traveling from a campaign event in Palm Beach County. He was  fatally struck on Interstate 95 as he was preparing to close access to the highway from the on-ramp as the presidential motorcade neared. He was hit by a white Ford F-150 pickup, and the impact pushed him and the motorcycle into a guardrail.
The accident happened around 4:40 p.m. on the southbound entrance ramp at 45th Street to Interstate 95. Immediately officer St. Laurent was taken to St. Mary’s Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
A former officer of the year, Bruce St. Laurent is survived by his wife of over 30 years and their four children.  He was awarded with a Distinguished Service Award by the Traffic Safety Committee in 2005. Fellow officers knew Bruce as a generous man, who often played Santa Claus for the local community.
