Police Officer Burke Rhoads was killed in a vehicle collision at the intersection of U.S. 27 and Rogers Road, in Garrard County, at approximately 7:00 am.

He was en route to Eastern Kentucky University to take a training course when another vehicle turned in front of his patrol car. The collision spun the patrol car around into oncoming traffic, where it was struck a second time from the rear.

Officer Rhoads was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries a short time later.

Officer Rhoads was a U.S. Army veteran and had served with the Nicholasville Police Department for seven years. He is survived by his wife, daughter, and two sons.

Revelation 21:3,4 "he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." I pray that God's promise for those that have fallen asleep in death provides some comfort for the family, friends, and colleagues of Officer Rhoads.
