Detective Mike Starrett succumbed to injuries sustained one week earlier when he was involved in a head-on crash while responding to a fatal accident in which a father and young son were killed.

Other vehicles were yielding to Detective Starrett's vehicle when it was struck by the pickup truck on Highway 116 at Little Cove Creek Road. Detective Starrett was transported to UT Medical Center where he underwent several surgeries before passing away seven days later.

The driver of the truck that struck his vehicle was charged with failure to maintain control and failure to exercise due care.

Detective Starrett had served with the Jacksboro Police Department for 20 years. He is survived by his wife.

My prayers are with the family and friends of Det. Starrett. Please take note of God's promise recorded for us at John 5:28,29 "for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". May the words of our heavenly Father Jehovah bring you comfort and solace.
