Deputy James Garrison was killed when his patrol car was broadsided while attempting to intercept two vehicles which were drag racing on Highway 30.

Deputy Garrison was crossing Highway 30 from a side street in High Ridge, Missouri, in an attempt to apprehend a reported drag race in progress approaching on west bound lanes. A truck driven by a DUI mail driving east on Highway 30 failed to yield to Deputy Garrison's vehicle, striking the patrol car in the driver's side door. He succumbed to his injuries while being transported to a hospital.

Deputy Garrison was survived by his wife, five children, parents, and siblings.
