Deputy Sheriff Edward Dare was killed in an automobile accident while responding to backup officers from a neighboring agency.

The officers were searching for a DUI driver who was brandishing a handgun at approximately 6:20 am. While en route, Deputy Dare's vehicle left the roadway and landed partially submerged in a drainage ditch. When Deputy Dare failed to arrive at the original call, officers began to search for him.

At 8:00 am, a citizen called to report a patrol car in the ditch and rescue crews arrived within minutes. Deputy Dare was pronounced dead at the scene.

Deputy Dare was a U.S. Navy veteran and had served with the Iron County Sheriff's Office for five years. He is survived by his wife and mother.
