Alexander Day

Game Warden Alexander Day was intentionally crushed between two cars while attempting to arrest a drunk man who was driving a stolen vehicle in Premier, McDowell County.

He and his brother, also a police officer, had setup a roadblock after receiving word of the stolen vehicle. As the vehicle approached, Game Warden Day stepped on the running board and placed his hands on the window.

The driver rolled the window up and then drove into oncoming traffic, intentionally ramming his vehicle against another vehicle, killing Game Warden Day. The driver was sentenced to 18 years in prison.

Game Warden Day had served with the agency for four years. He was survived by his wife and seven children and is buried in New Belcher Mountain Community Cemetery, Kimball, McDowell County, West Virginia.
