Trooper Wendy Everett was struck and killed by an automobile while standing next to her patrol car on I-270. She was taking a report from a trucker whose windshield had been smashed by a water balloon dropped from a freeway bridge near Circleville, Ohio.

The driver who killed Trooper Everett turned himself in the next day. He plead guilty to involuntary manslaughter, was sentenced to two to 10 years in prison, and was released on shock parole after serving 18 months.

Trooper Everett was survived by her parents and sister.

Tpr. Everett: Though I never met you personally, I will never forget that morning at GHQ when we got the word about you. It just seemed that time stopped; and even those of us who never knew you personally felt the same as if we had lost a family member, a sister--because we had. I hadn't been on the Patrol very long when we lost you--but it made such a deep impact and still does to this day. Rest assured you will never be forgotten by those on the Ohio State Highway Patrol, no matter how many years pass by. Job well done, Tpr. Everett, job well done ...
