Officer Freddie Norman succumbed to injuries sustained 21 years earlier when his patrol car was struck by a teenage drunk driver as he responded to an emergency call. The accident left him as a quadriplegic. His death was determined to be a direct result of the injuries sustained in the crash.

The drunk driver was sentenced to six months in a halfway house and was forbidden from ever holding a Georgia driver's license.

Officer Norman is survived by his wife, three daughters, and three grandsons.

I remember when this happened. It's such a shame what Freddie had to go through after the crash, including the financial support that he should have received but never got.
My heart goes out to his family. They have my deepest sympathy.
