Patrolman Carpenter was killed when he was struck by a stolen vehicle while attempting to setup a roadblock on the I-264 off-ramp at Belmont Avenue. He and another officer had setup their patrol cars to block the exit ramp, but to allow enough space for the car to come through. The vehicle began to slow down, but the driver accelerated as Patrolman Carpenter came through the opening between the patrol cars. Patrolman Carpenter was struck and knocked 75-feet, then was run over by the vehicle. The driver of the vehicle was eventually apprehended.
Patrolman Carpenter had been with the agency for one year and had been a military policeman for the three prior years.
