He was responding to a child abuse call when he noticed a truck fish tailing down the road. He pulled off to the shoulder to avoid the truck but it drove over the driver's side of his vehicle, killing him. Deputy Beckmann's partner survived the incident.

Deputy Beckmann had served with the San Diego County Sheriff's Department for 8 years and is survived by his two sons.
