Jeffrey Wayne Greene

Sergeant Jeffrey Greene was killed when his patrol car was crushed by a tractor trailer on U.S. 74 at Sutherland Avenue.

The tractor trailer overturned when it attempted to avoid rear-ending a tanker truck that was stopped at the light in the right travel lane. The tractor trailer struck another car and then landed on top of Sergeant Greene's patrol car while he was stopped in a turn lane, causing him to suffer fatal injuries.

The driver of the tractor trailer was transported to a local hospital and charged with misdemeanor death by vehicle.

Sergeant Greene was a veteran of both the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Marine Corps. He had served with the Union County Sheriff's Office for 10 years and is survived by his wife, two daughters, and five grandchildren.
