Border Patrol Agent Michael Gallagher was killed when his patrol truck was struck by a drunk driver on Federal Route 19 on the Tohono O'odham Reservation near Casa Grande, Arizona.

His truck was struck by a drunk driver who ran a stop sign. The collision caused his truck to overturn, ejecting him from the vehicle. The drunk driver was charged with voluntary manslaughter, DUI, and other charges, and plead guilty to manslaughter. She was sentenced to five years in prison.

Agent Gallagher had served with the United States Border Patrol for two years and was assigned to the Tucson Sector; he had previously served with the United States Army in Iraq. He is survived by his wife, two sons, mother, father, and two sisters.
