Officer Wesley Silas was killed after being struck by a tractor trailer at the Agricultural Inspection Station on I-10 near Live Oak, Florida. He had stopped the truck for inspection and had just completed his paperwork, noting several suspicious items on the truck's registration. After returning the registration to the driver he walked in front of the truck to return to the inspection station when the driver began to drive forward, striking Officer Silas.

The driver claimed he did not see Officer Silas walk in front of the truck. Due to a lack of evidence no charges were ever filed against the trucker and Officer Silas' death was ruled accidental.
