Officer Larry Cantrell was killed in an automobile accident while responding to a call of a burglary in progress.

Officer Cantrell was on patrol when he received the burglary call. He was en route on Highway 66 with his lights and sirens on when a vehicle pulled out in front of him. In an attempt to avoid a collision, Officer Cantrell veered off the road, but his patrol car flipped over. Officer Cantrell was air lifted to Tulsa Hospital, but died from his injuries.

Patrolman Cantrell's father, who was participating in a ride along and sitting in the front passenger seat of the patrol car, was also killed in the accident.

Officer Cantrell had previously served with the Vinita Police Department and spent 11 years in the United States Navy.

Impossible night. Can't sleep.
Life is so good and really rolling along ! Yet, It's incomplete...imagine it always will be. No reason for my heart to be this sad and broken. Perhaps new friends from our PD spark memories. Perhaps it's May and black and blue are everywhere. Or perhaps I just hear the wind blowing and the chimes outside the window remind me of your funeral. I really really really really need you! Lately it's more sad to think of you than it is happy reminiscing. And even more sad I feel the need to apologise for feeling that way.
