Killed during a traffic collision while escorting a funeral procession for another officer. Tragic. RIP Brother.

Wow. Sounds like a minor crash, but he slid into oncoming traffic. Terrible.

RIP, brother.

Sheesh. Looks like CJ's motorcycle thread was right on time.

Prayers tonight, and Godspeed. What a year.

Being a motor is a dangerous post.

My sympathies to family and friends. Salutes to the fallen officer and the injured officer.
