Aubrey Eugene McCurry

Officer McCurry was struck and killed by a drunk driver while directing traffic at an accident scene. The accident Officer McCurry was directing traffic around blocked all but one lane. Witnesses say Officer McCurry moved to one side and the truck matched him move for move. It is possible Officer McCurry changed positions to avoid having the truck plow into the first accident. That crash could have killed at least 5 people. The drunk driver was later convicted of involuntary manslaughter.

Officer McCurry was survived by his wife and four children.
