Officer Britt Thomas Irvine was killed when his patrol car was washed off of a roadway in a terrible storm attributed to the El Niño phenomenon.

Officer Irvine and his partner, Officer Rick Stovall, were responding to a call to assist stranded motorists on Highway 166 when the storm washed out the section of roadway they were on. Both officers were killed and several other motorists were washed into the water as well. Their patrol car was found upside down under silt, mud, and debris approximately 100 yards from the roadway.

I worked with Brit in San Jose. The smile you see in the picture here on the site is the real thing. I will always remember the great smiles and great attitude. He was fun to work with and I really liked being around him. I miss him. He was a great officer and is missed.
