Trooper Jason Manspeaker was killed in a vehicle crash while responding to investigate the sighting of a van suspected of being used during the murder of Irving, Texas, Police Officer Aubrey Hawkins.

During the response, Trooper Manspeaker's Jeep Cherokee patrol vehicle left the icy roadway and struck a flat bed tractor-trailer that was parked on the shoulder of I-70 near Loveland Pass.

The van in question was later located, but it was not the van used in the murder. However, the van used during Officer Hawkins' murder was located later in the day in a different part of Colorado.

Trooper Manspeaker had served with the Colorado State Patrol for 18 months. He is survived by his wife.
