Cause: Automobile accident
Deputy Michael Egan was killed in an automobile accident when his patrol car was broadsided by a vehicle that had run a red light.
While Deputy Egan was reporting to court, he was stopped at an intersection for a red light. At that time, a driver was approaching the intersection with a green light at a high rate of speed. As her light turned red, she attempted to traverse the intersection before the other cars entered. As Deputy Egan entered the intersection his vision was obstructed by a vehicle traveling past him in the opposite direction; when that vehicle cleared his position he was immediately struck broadside by the errant vehicle. Citizens used the patrol unit radio and called for help, but Deputy Egan had already succumbed to his injuries.
