Lieutenant Herman Brooks died of injuries he sustained eight and a half years earlier when he was struck by vehicle.

He was assisting at the scene of an automobile accident when the driver of a vehicle passing the accident was signaled to change lanes by another officer. The driver did not follow the instructions and struck Lieutenant Brooks.

Lieutenant Brooks was thrown head first into the path of another moving vehicle, and sustained massive head injuries. He was removed to a hospital where he remained on life support for 8.5 years.

A grand jury failed to return a true bill against the driver.

Lieutenant Brooks had served with the DeRidder Police Department for 13 years. He is survived by his wife, children, and grandchildren.

When calamity comes, the wicked are brought down, but even in death the righteous have a refuge - Proverbs 14:32.

The fact that your killer never faced trial makes me sick.

My heart and prayers are with all who love and miss you today.
