Patrolman Lloyd Aragon was struck by a suspect's vehicle and killed while laying stop sticks on I-40 near Grants, New Mexico.

He and his partner were in plain clothes and en route to a federal court to testify in a case when they heard the radio traffic about the pursuit. They offered to assist the pursuit and stopped on I-40 to deploy the spike strip at approximately 0730 hours. As the suspect vehicle approached the scene, the driver swerved off the road to avoid the strips and struck Officer Aragon. The suspect and an accomplice were apprehended at the scene.

Patrolman Aragon had been employed with the New Mexico State Police for eight years, and had been in law enforcement for an additional five years.

13 years ago today, on that Wednesday morning, 630 - 7 am or so , Lloyd and Billy was gassing up at the Conoco station, before they were going to heading out to Albuquerque, we pulled in about the same time before we made our deliveries to the local Hotels. We talked , joked for a while, never to know, never to think that tragedy was less than half hour away. I knew Lloyd from Joe's Karate Club where we trained and of course Grants is a fantastic city where good people can make friends instantly. Since than there is not a year to pass by that August 1st when it comes, or when the News brings troubled news about officers , firefighters that my dear friend would not cross my mind. I would like to join the others to leave my part of pledge for Lloyd as well. Rest in peace, you'll be always remembered.
