Trooper John Mann was killed when he was struck by a vehicle while he was chasing a suspected carjacker on foot.

Trooper Mann was in a vehicle pursuit when the suspect crashed into a retaining wall on I-24 near Nashville, Tennessee. Trooper Mann was able to catch the suspect on foot and was in the process of arresting him when another driver struck both men. Trooper Mann was killed instantly and the suspect was critically injured.

The suspect who struck Trooper Mann fled the scene but later turned himself in at a local police station and was charged with vehicular homicide. The suspect was later convicted of leaving the scene of an accident and sentenced to 18 months in jail with all but 45 days suspended. The remaining time is to be served as probation.

Trooper Mann was a U.S Army veteran and had served with the Tennessee Highway Patrol for 16 years. He is survived by his teenage daughter, mother, three brothers, and three sisters. Two of his brothers also serve as police officers in Tennessee.

Hey sweetie, hard to comprehend it's been over 14 years since I've seen that grin. Or had trouble cuz I didn't keep the fork. 14 years...lots of changes...moving on finally. Say 'hi' to JE for me since I'm sure he's up there cracking bad jokes. Last conference was a huge success. You would have loved it.
