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.
