City Detective Recovering After Motorcycle Crash

A longtime city police officer is recovering at UPMC Presbyterian Hospital, Oakland, after being injured in a serious motorcycle crash on Route 48.
McKeesport police Chief Adam Alfer said Detective Joseph Osinski was southbound at Ripple Road at around 3 p.m. Monday when his motorcycle collided with a car pulling out onto the highway.
White Oak police are investigating. Chief Mark Sargent could not be reached for comment.
Osinski and his wife, Brenda, are the owners of Puzzlers’ Restaurant & Lounge in Christy Park and founders of the Joey-O Foundation for Autism Awareness, and are frequent contributors to charitable causes around the region.
Several fundraisers have been launched to support Osinski’s recovery, including a raffle ticket distribution by Legion Arms on Market Street that was quickly sold out.
In a Facebook post shared to Puzzlers’ page, Brenda Osinski said her husband suffered a broken knee, hip and shoulder, as well as a broken pelvis and vertebrae in his back, but that he was coherent and able to talk to his doctors.
Osinski has had one surgery already but will need additional surgeries in the weeks to come, she wrote.
At Wednesday’s city council meeting, McKeesport Mayor Michael Cherepko asked members of council and the public to keep Osinski in their prayers.
“He is lucky to be alive, to be honest with you,” Cherepko said. “He is doing well, all things considered, but he’s got a really long road to recovery.”
Osinski has been a McKeesport police officer for more than 20 years, Alfer said. He was not on duty at the time of the accident and was riding his personal vehicle.
“Obviously, these are very unfortunate circumstances, but we’re pulling for him and his family and hoping for a speedy recovery,” he said. “He’s a tremendous asset to this department.”
Many people have reached out to the department to inquire about Osinski’s condition and ask if they could help, Alfer said.
“It’s greatly appreciated by the Osinski family and the police department,” he said, adding that he also wanted to thank all of the first-responders — police, fire and paramedics — who responded to the accident call on Monday.
