Henry Orlander Johnson

Sergeant Johnson was killed when his patrol car was struck by a train while he responded to an accident with injuries call. Because of the fan-type horn on the train, Sergeant Johnson did not see or hear the train approaching as he entered the railroad crossing. The impact knocked the car 91-feet and caused Sergeant Johnson to suffer fatal head and internal injuries.

The Muscogee County Police Department was later disbanded and was incorporated into the Columbus Police Department.

Sergeant Johnson had been with the agency for 13 years.
