Sheriff George Huffaker was killed in a single vehicle crash on Stemple Hill Road while returning three nurses to Helena who had become stranded while camping near Lincoln.

The vehicle's steering mechanism failed, causing his car to leave the roadway and overturn. He was partially ejected from the vehicle and killed instantly. One of the nurses was able to free herself from the wreckage and walk five miles to the nearest phone. The other two nurses were eventually freed from the wreckage with only minor injuries.

Sheriff Huffaker was serving his second term as sheriff. He had previously served as chief of the Helena Fire Department. He was survived by his wife.

Sheriff Huffaker,
You were a faithful servant of our county in many ways. We are doing everything we can to make sure you are remembered for your service and sacrifice. I am currently working to have your name added to the Montana Law Enforcement memorial at the Montana state capital grounds. This task is currently in the works.
Respectfully,

Sgt. Clint Pullman
Lewis and Clark County Sheriff's Office
