Patrolman Wilbert Wiggins suffered a fatal heart attack while attempting to hook up a trailer to a police truck.

He and several officers were preparing to conduct a traffic operation on a local interstate, and Patrolman Wiggins was preparing some of the equipment. He collapsed as he was pulling a trailer towards the police truck. Other officers located him on the ground next to the truck after he failed to arrive at the location of the traffic operation. He was taken to a local hospital where he passed away the following day.

Patrolman Wiggins had been employed with the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office for 41 years, and is survived by his wife and three children.
