Patrolman Michael Reedy and Patrolman Thomas Kennedy were stuck and killed by a vehicle while directing traffic at an accident scene on Route 303.

Patrolmen Reedy and Kennedy, and other emergency personnel, were at the scene of a serious accident on State Rt. 303 in the Hamlet of Blauvelt. The accident scene was closed off and well lit by flares and emergency lights of Police, Fire and Ambulance vehicles. A drunk driver coming north at a high rate of speed passed the flares, drove over the fire hoses and struck Officer Reedy and Officer Kennedy who were standing together in the roadway.

Officer Reedy had served with the agency for four years.

I am privileged to leave a tribute to you. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered. Rest In Peace.
