Trooper Kevin Manion was accidentally shot and killed while assisting another trooper investigating a single vehicle automobile accident on Route 649 in Clarke County.

The automobile accident occurred when a pickup truck went into a ditch and overturned. During the accident investigation a rifle inside the pickup truck discharged as the pickup was being moved. The round struck Trooper Manion in the chest in an area not protected by his vest.

Trooper Manion succumbed to his wound after being flown to Inova Fairfax Hospital in Fairfax County.

The truck's two occupants were arrested at the scene on alcohol related charges stemming from the automobile accident. Investigation revealed that the rifle had been stolen earlier in the day during a residential burglary. The driver of the pickup truck was subsequently charged with second degree murder, possession of a firearm by a felon, larceny of a firearm, and daytime breaking and entering. He plead guilty to involuntary manslaughter in December 2006 and was subsequently sentenced to 10 years.

Trooper Manion had served with the Virginia State Police for just under 3 years, and was assigned to the Area 13 Office in Winchester.

I remember losing you like it was yesterday. But what I remember fondly is sitting at the four mile marker having cool conversations about vintage cars while we both ran radar. You are so missed; and will never be forgotten.
