Victor Pimentel

Officer Victor Pimental was killed when a tractor-trailer struck his cruiser while he was at a traffic stop at 11:00 pm.

The accident occurred on a five-lane highway just inside the city limits. Officer Pimentel's vehicle was parked on the curb lane with more than one mile of visibility from the rear. The tractor-trailer drifted to the side of the road due to driver fatigue and struck Officer Pimentel's cruiser, which was pushed into the other vehicle. The driver of the other car was injured.

Officer Pimentel had served with the Hinesville Police Department for five years. He is survived by his wife, two small children, parents, and brother.

Your family and my family shared a street as neighbors but more than that we shared a lifelong friendship. Your brother, Jerry, is still on patrol and would have made you so proud. You were so young when this happened and that day was a tragic and somber time in our community. May you always Rest In Peace and your memory continue to bring comfort to your family knowing your life was not in vain. Thank you for your service!
