Sergeant Michael Larson was killed in an automobile accident caused by a drunk driver while responding to backup deputies shortly before midnight.

The drunk driver had lost control of his vehicle and crashed on Highway 280 near Highway 204. The driver then left the vehicle in the travel lane without lights on and did not report the incident.

Sergeant Larson encountered the vehicle as he responded to another incident. His patrol car sideswiped the vehicle in the lane and then struck several trees.

Hey Daddy,

BIG NEWS!! You won't believe this, but I moved to Oklahoma.

I'm not alone though, which is good. I'm here with a special family that I met at COPS Kids Camp. I made a split second decision and called mama on my drive home.

It's been kinda hard being so far from the fam, but now I'm kinda closer to Big Megan, so I'm hoping I'll get to make it up to see her and the kids soon.

I start my new college next Monday. I got asked to be on their newspaper/Magazine team, which is a huge honor. It gets distributed all over the city every year, so I'm really excited about that.

Miss you as always,
Love Little Meg
