Officer William Rickabaugh was killed when he rode into a steel cable which had been strung across the entrance to a construction zone. He was responding to a report of a motorcycle driving on an overpass which was under construction. As he approached the scene on his motorcycle he struck the cable. The warning flags that had been attached to the cable had been removed by vandals.

Officer Rickabaugh was survived by his wife and two children.
