Sergeant Rector and Trooper Scott Lyons were killed in Gilchrist after being involved in a traffic accident. The two officers were assisting another officer at the scene of an accident involving a drunk driver when their marked sport utility vehicle was struck by a wood-chipping truck. They were both pronounced dead at the scene. Sergeant Rector was scheduled to be off duty that day but volunteered to assist other troopers during an annual event in the area. He is survived by his wife and two grown children. The driver of the truck was not injured.
