Police Officer Clark Wooldridge was killed in an automobile accident while responding to a report of a fight caused by a traffic crash. During the response his patrol car collided with another vehicle, overturned, and became engulfed in flames.

Another officer who was responding to the call was able to pull Officer Wooldridge, who was unconscious, from the vehicle. The officer, along with the assistance of a citizen, carried him away from the burning car.

He was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries two days later.

Officer Wooldridge had served with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department for one year. He was survived by his wife.

Thank you all for your beautiful reflections of my brother. TG - I remember you - and yes, Clark did die doing what he was placed on this earth to do...take care of people. To this day, he is still taking care of me...and many others. He was a great brother.
