Officer Sean Nava was killed after he was struck by a drunk driver while assisting at a previous accident on I-5 in the San Diego area.

Officer Nava was standing in the median approximately six feet from the travel lanes when the incident occurred. He was flown to a local hospital where he died a short time later.

After the collision, the suspect fled the scene, but was later arrested and charged with DUI, hit and run, and manslaughter. A passenger in the vehicle stated that the suspect was aware that he hit something on the freeway before he fled the scene.
In 1999, Officer Nava had been awarded the Spirit of Courage Award for his attempts to save a man from a burning vehicle.

Officer Nava had been employed with the California Highway Patrol for 12 years, and is survived by his wife and two children, ages 4 and 7.

Hello Sean,

Sorry for not checking in sooner, but I just wanted you to know how much I enjoyed our morning coffee together while working A-watch in San Diego. You always knew how to put a smile on my face Sean. I can't believe how quickly the years go by. Rest in peace brother......
