Officer Justin McGrory was struck and killed by a drunk driver while conducting a field sobriety test on I-15 in Barstow at 3:38 am.

He and his partner had stopped a suspected drunk driver and were administering the tests when he was struck. His partner was not injured. The drunk driver who struck him stopped a short distance away. He was arrested and charged with vehicular manslaughter and driving under the influence of marijuana.

On June 24, 2012, the suspect was acquitted after his trial resulted in a hung jury.

Officer McGrory had served with the California Highway Patrol for almost three years. He is survived by his expectant wife and three small children. His fourth child, a daughter, was born on July 20, 2010.

A couple of weeks ago I participated in "The Heroes Ride," a bicycle ride out of Conroe, TX and proceeds go to TX Wheels of Justice to benefit the National Law Enforcement Officer’s Memorial. Each rider was given a wristband with the name of a fallen officer and mine had Officer McGrory's name. I never met him but reading the reflections on this page I can tell he was a very good man who should still be with us. My prayers go out to his family.
