Officer Powell was killed after his patrol car was struck by a suspect's vehicle during a pursuit. Officers had just terminated the chase when the suspect turned his headlights out, turned around, and drove head-on into Officer Powell's patrol car.

The patrol car was so severely damaged that it took rescue workers more than one hour to free him from the wreckage. He was airlifted to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead a short time after arriving. The suspect was injured in the accident.

Officer Powell had served with the agency for 2 years. He is survived by his wife and two small children.
