More than 60 motorcycles participated in a memorial run Sunday in honor of Lodi Police Capt. Carl “Smokey” Summers, who died Dec. 10, 1977 after being struck by a stolen pickup truck while on duty. The police-escorted run, organized by Carl Summers’ brother, Dave Summers, 54, began at Century Harley-Davidson, 3053 Eastpointe Drive, Medina Township, and ended at the cemetery in Lodi where Carl Summers is buried. The event raised $2,281 for a monument in the village’s Central Park. (GAZETTE PHOTO BY DAVID KNOX)
