Jonathan D. Wallace

Deputy Sheriff Jonathan Wallace and Deputy Sheriff Donta Manuel were struck and killed by a patrol car while attempting to remove stop sticks from the roadway.

A stolen vehicle that was being pursued by other deputies had just passed over the stop sticks and the two deputies ran into the road to remove them. It is believed that, because of the darkness, the deputies did not observe how fast the pursuing units were following behind the suspect vehicle. One of the pursuing patrol cars struck both deputies, killing them. The driver of that patrol car was seriously injured and flown to a local hospital.

One of the suspects in the stolen car was apprehended a short time later.

Deputy Wallace had served with the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office for 18 months. He is survived by his fiancee.
