Police officers put their lives on the line every day as they work hard to protect and serve their respective areas, but the knowledge that their job is dangerous does not make the loss of an officer any less tragic. The death of an officer still impacts the family of the victim and even the community in which they worked. Unfortunately, one motor vehicle accident in California recently took the life of one officer.
The accident occurred on October 28 at around 1:15 a.m. and involved two vehicles. The officer had apparently stopped an individual and was on his way back to his vehicle when another car collided with the two stopped cars. The vehicle then left the scene of the accident but was later apprehended after he caused another accident.
