Sergeant Judson Cornwall was struck and killed by an out-of-control vehicle while attempting to push people out of its path.

Sergeant Judson Cornwall was assigned to work a security detail at the Legion Ascot Raceway, and was assigned to the Lincoln Heights Division. At exactly 9:30 PM, a crash occurred involving two race cars, which had locked wheels. The cars skidded into a turn and were unable to stop. As Sergeant Cornwall tried to alert bystanders of the oncoming danger, he was struck and killed instantly.

Never got to meet you grandpa, wish I could have as from everything I have heard you were an amazing man. Also a humble and wonderful example of what a Christian can be. I don't understand why there is no record of your badge number? Thanks for being a hero, see you someday in heaven.
