During the response the patrol car blew out the right front tire, causing it to go out of control and strike a utility pole. Two months prior to the accident Officer Young and his partner were awarded Officer of the Month for their outstanding police work.
Officer Young was survived by his wife and mother.

Not a day goes by that I don't think of you, I was your loving wife. You were 29 when I buried you, I was 26, we were only married 13 months.
Life goes on for the living but it is forever changed. As the anniversary of that tragic day approaches, I am reminded of a life lost too young. You never knew fatherhood, I have been blessed with two beautiful children, young adults now. And one day grandchildren, God willing. May we meet in heaven where I know you rest. Love, Irene
