Officer Kirk Huffstetler was killed in an automobile accident on Marine Drive while responding to apprehend a robbery suspect.

The suspect had called police from a cell phone to report he committed the robbery, but when officers arrived he was gone. The suspect called a second time and this call was tracked. Officer Huffstetler was responding with lights and sirens to where the suspect was tracked to when he either swerved to miss another car, or failed to negotiate a curve, causing his patrol car to strike a concrete barrier.

Officer Huffstetler had been employed with the Portland Police Bureau for 7 months, and had previously served with the Portland Public Schools Police Department for over 6 years. He is survived by his expectant wife and two children.

Gosh. Hard to believe its been 12 years since you left us. I think about you all the time. In my daily tasks at home and on my hourly drive to work and back. When I see a big beautiful sun start to come up over Mount Jefferson and set over that same mountain I think of you and it brings me peace.
