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.

You have always been in my thoughts. I had the honor of learning and working with Lloyd during his time at Grants Police Department. Lloyd had the natural ability to know when things were not what they seemed. I asked Lloyd how he knew this or maybe he was just lucky. Lloyd told me " If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck"! You are truly missed! You taught me to treat others with respect at all times. Thank you. God bless you and your family.
