Deputy Angela Payne was killed after she was struck by a vehicle while she was investigating an accident.

She and another officer had responded to a business when the sheriff's department received a 911 call about a possible shooting. Because there was no shoulder on the road, both officers parked in the north-bound lane of the two lane road. While standing in the south-bound lane, both officers were struck from behind by another driver. They were transported by ambulance to a local hospital where Deputy Payne was pronounced dead. The second officer was admitted in critical condition. No charges were filed against the driver of the vehicle.
Deputy Payne had been employed with the Knox County Sheriff's Department for three years, and is survived by her mother and grandmother.

So many times I have thought of you and the fun working with you in booking prior to your transfer to the road. I can remember hearing you sing "Down Came a Black Bird" over and over. You are still missed so many years...
