Officer Juan Gonzalez and Officer Brian Law 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 Gonzalez had served with the California Highway Patrol for six years.

On behalf of my family, I extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when Juan was killed.

To Juan's family, my heart goes out to all of you and may you find comfort in your loved ones and your strength in your faith. When my son was killed, the entire law enforcement community in our area embraced us in a circle of love and support, and I know you will receive the same support. It makes the unbearable less torturous, and I pray for your solace.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Officer Gonzalez gave to his community and the citizens of California, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on February 17, 2014.
