William Ricky Hudson

Deputy Hudson was killed in an accident resulting from a vehicle pursuit. Deputy Hudson was pursuing a shooting suspect at 0113 hours. He was attempting to stop at an intersection when his patrol car skidded 26 feet into a tractor trailer. The vehicle being pursued did not contain the shooting suspect that officers believed they were chasing. The suspect, however, was apprehended the next day. The man committed suicide by hanging himself in his jail cell two weeks after his guilty plea.

Deputy Hudson had been with the agency for over five years and was survived by his wife, four children, and parents.
