Victor Pimentel

Officer Pimentel was killed when his cruiser was struck by a tractor trailer while he was on a traffic stop at 2300 hours. The accident occurred on a five lane highway just inside the city limits. Officer Pimentel's vehicle was parked on the curb lane with more than one mile of visibility from the rear. The tractor trailer drifted to the side of the road due to driver fatigue and struck Officer Pimentel's cruiser, which was pushed into the other vehicle. The driver of the other car was injured.

Officer Pimentel is survived by his wife, two small children, parents, and brother.
