Trooper Jeffrey Werda was killed in an automobile accident while responding to assist Saginaw County deputies who were involved in a pursuit at approximately 1:30 am.

Several minutes after he notified dispatchers he was responding to assist, a motorist called 911 to report finding a crashed patrol car on Birch Run Road, just west of Moorish Road in Birch Run Township. Trooper Werda's patrol car had rolled over several times and he was ejected from the vehicle.

He was transported to Covenant HealthCare Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Trooper Werda had served with the Michigan State Police for 11 years.

Jeff, the loss of you is just as fresh today as it was that April. Todd gave me one of your Commemorative Coins. I'm so appreciative for it. First time I saw him, I did a double take, cause he looks so much like you. He just looked at me and said ""I know". I had to give him a hug. In my heart, I was hugging you. I'll never forget the days at Hansens and especially when you scared Shelly so bad, she peed her pants. You laughed so hard, you had to crawl around to the north door. Miss you so much my friend. Till we meet again.
