Officer Dean Beattie was killed while attempting to pass a slow-moving truck on Route 163, near I-8, in San Diego County at 1255 hours.

Officer Beattie had been following the truck when he activated his emergency lights. He accelerated to approximately 60 mph and attempted to pass it on the right hand shoulder. His BMW patrol motorcycle struck the truck near the right-hand wheel well and he was thrown to the ground. Since Officer Beattie did not make radio contact prior to the accident, it was not known why he activated his emergency equipment.

He was transported to Sharp Memorial Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries a short time later.

Officer Beattie had served with the California Highway Patrol for 24 years, and had previously served with the United States Marine Corps. He is survived by his wife, six children, his parents, two brothers, and a sister.
