Trooper Zachariah Templeton succumbed to injures sustained the previous day when he was struck by a vehicle.

Trooper Templeton and another trooper had stopped on the side of I-76 to help a man re-load two plastic farm chemical tanks that had fallen off a trailer. As they were loading the containers, a vehicle heading east left the roadway and struck both troopers.

They were both taken to Denver Health Medical Center where Trooper Templeton succumbed to his injuries the following day. The other trooper remained in serious condition.

The driver was sentenced to two years probation after pleading down to a charge of careless driving resulting in death.

Trooper Templeton had served with the Colorado State Patrol for 4 years, and was assigned to the 1D Troop in Adams County. He is survived by his 3-year-old daughter.
