I was a member of the Kansas Highway Patrol for one year when the accident happened on the Turnpike that took the life of Lt. Hill. It was a sad day for all of us at that time. I will always remember Bernie and the sacrifice he made in the line of duty for the citizens of the State of Kansas. Rest in Peace.
