Officer Brian Law and Officer Juan Gonzalez were killed in a single vehicle crash while responding to an accident call on Highway 99, near Bethel Avenue, in Kingsburg at approximately 6:00 am.

Both officers were riding in the same cruiser responding to the accident, which had been incorrectly reported in the northbound lanes of Highway 99. As they responded to the scene they came upon the accident in the southbound lanes with one of the victims in their travel lane. The patrol car swerved in an attempt to avoid striking the victim, struck the guardrail, and overturned.

They both suffered fatal injuries in the crash.

Officer Law had served with the California Highway Patrol for six years. He is survived by his wife and three children.

Happy Birthday Brian. Was just watching NBC News this evening and they showed a little video of your boys/girls from the Oakland CHP office chasing a silver Hyundai north on 23rd st. right in front of Queenies Nail and Taqueria Respados jr. Made me think of your partner John and friend Jared. So I sent them a text message. Not really sure what they think of that. Curious isn't it that they would show video of your Oakland CHP officers chasing a Hyundai up 23rd st. on your birthday? I don't really know why that would happen. I'm pretty sure the video they showed wasn't video that happened just today, I'm thinking it was video that was sitting on a shelf that was filmed sometime ago. Who knows it might even have been you that was driving one of the 2 Ford Explorers they showed chasing that Hyundai. Probably no way of knowing that. It would be incredible though. So today on your birthday I'm having some old #7 and Pepsi thinking about my baby boy. Life is much more difficult to navigate through these days. You'll be happy to know that your sister and niece are doing well. Just got back from seeing them last week. We had a good visit. Barbecued some pork chops. I love you baby boy.
