Officer Beryl Scott was killed in a motorcycle accident at 3:10 pm, shortly after starting his shift.

He was en route to a local hospital to assist with a fatal DUI investigation when a vehicle pulled out of a parking lot onto North Seventh Street, directly into his path. Officer Scott's motorcycle struck the passenger door and he was thrown over the vehicle. He was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries 30 minutes later.

The spot where Officer Scott was killed was the exact same spot where Officer Patrick Briggs was killed in a motorcycle accident on June 20, 1990, under identical circumstances.

Officer Scott had served with the Phoenix Police Department for ten years. He is survived by his expectant wife, parents, sister, and three brothers.

Just want to see how things are going for you big brother, its been a long journey without you to lead me. You should see your nephews and nieces, the newest is 9 months now. A true doll, and I think she is left handed like you, but I do hope she doesn't have your sunflower seed eating habit or your love for cottage cheese, that's just gross.
Carry on...
