Gregory A. Geoffrion

Inspector Geoffrion succumbed to injuries sustained one week earlier when he was struck by a car. While on patrol during evening hours he came upon a car on the northbound shoulder of I-25 near Budaghers with all of its doors and trunk open. He and a backup unit from the Sandoval County Sheriff's Department went to investigate the vehicle and saw a woman walking towards them and the vehicle. The officers told her to stop but she ran across the traffic lanes of I-25.

Inspector Geoffrion pursued her across the road and had caught her when he was hit by a northbound vehicle, sending him into the path of a northbound van, which ran over his legs. The deputy dragged Officer Geoffrion to safety and called for medical assistance. Inspector Geoffrion was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his wounds seven days later.

It saddens me to this day that Greg is not here with us. On that November night I was the Paramedic on-scene as the narrative describes. I have lived the last the last 19 years thinking about Greg nearly everyday. To say the least what happened was horrific for him, as well as me. I struggle to this day with the senseless loss of a good man. I can only hope and pray that Greg is smiling down on us, as he is in a better place. Rest in peace my Brother. Mike
