Park Ranger Julie Weir was killed in an automobile accident on I-80 near Kearney, Nebraska.

Ranger Weir was on official travel status while relocating from her permanent position at Independence National Historic Park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to a field training assignment at Yosemite National Park in California. Her vehicle went out of control during a heavy snow storm, crossed into oncoming traffic, and collided with a tractor trailer.

Ranger Weir had served as a seasonal law enforcement park ranger with the National Park Service for 11 years and had just graduated from FLETC as a full-time law enforcement ranger.

Julie, I had not heard until this morning, five years after the fact. I knew there had to be a reason that the world is a sadder place today...and now I know why. Gone much too soon. Will always remember our hikes in Denali. You were a great kid and I'm real sad about it, and I wish I knew what else to say...Peace be with you my friend.
