Riders remember Scott Wertz

READING, Pa. - Riders took to the streets Sunday to remember a Reading police officer who died in the line of duty eight years ago.

69 News was in Bern Township for the start of the memorial ride for Officer Scott Wertz, which began at Classic Harley Davidson dealership at 983 James Drive, off Route 183, in Bern Township.

Bikers traveled through Reading and Berks County, ending at Captain's Cove/Mountain Springs Restaurant, 2619 Hill Rd., in Lower Alsace Township.

It was a perfect day for a ride and a way to honor Wertz's memory.

Wertz served the Reading Police Department for nine years before being killed in the line of duty in 2006.

The proceeds from the ride went to the Officer Scott Wertz Memorial Scholarship Fund, which is managed by the Berks County Community Foundation.

Each year, a senior or seniors from Berks County receive money/a scholarship to be applied toward upcoming educational expenses.
