Auxiliary Officer George Starr was struck by a car and killed while he tried to help people out of cars following a traffic accident on I-264, between Birdneck Road and First Colonial Road, at 4:00 am.

Officer Starr was on his way home when he stopped to help at an accident scene caused by an impaired driver. He was in uniform, but had only his private vehicle and was the only officer on the scene at the time. Shortly after he arrived, another impaired driver going above the speed limit crashed into the original scene, killing both Officer Starr and a civilian woman who had also stopped to help.

Officer Starr had served with the agency for only three months and had previously served for six years with the United States Navy. He was survived by his wife and parents, and three siblings.
