Officer Glenn Austraw was killed in an accident on his way to a required training course.

As he was driving, a tractor trailer cut him off and his personal truck flipped over numerous times in the median. The driver of the tractor trailer fled the scene of the accident. Officer Austraw was pronounced dead at the scene. Although he was driving his personal vehicle, he was in uniform at the time of the accident.

Officer Austraw had served with the Pensacola Police Department for one year. He is survived by his expectant wife, and his young son. His wife later gave birth to his daughter, born on his birthday.

I was a friend of Rowe's in high school. The news of his passing was terrible to receive. I can't say enough about the size of his heart. His smile was contagious and he could always find the silver lining when things got tough. The fact that I searched for him 25 years after the last time I saw him should show just how amazing I thought he was. I'd love to talk to his children some day and share some fun stories and examples of his amazing spirit. I miss you brother. May you rest in peace and may your family take solace in the fact that so many people think so highly of him.
