Kevin John Fischer

Police Officer Fischer was struck and killed by a pickup truck while investigating the scene of an earlier accident on I-95, at Route 92, involving a Volusia County deputy sheriff.

While Officer Fischer was standing next to his motorcycle a pickup truck drifted onto the shoulder and struck him and the motorcycle, throwing him down a 5-foot embankment. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The deputy involved in the initial crash and a Florida Highway Patrol trooper were also injured in the incident.

Officer Fischer had served with the Daytona Beach Police Department for four years. He is survived by his expectant wife, who gave birth to a boy.

Tomorrow, 14 June 2019 I will retire from the FBI after nearly 21 years. Eight days before reporting to FBI training in Virginia, Kevin was taken from us all too soon. I was required to leave my life back in Daytona Beach behind for several decades over the time of my career but so often drew focus and inspiration to make Kevin proud of my career and contributions. When after ten years into my career I was assigned to our Washington Field Office located nearby to the National Police Memorial where your name is proudly memorialized. I visited with you when I faced tough life decisions on warm summer days at lunch or with a coffee on blustery fall afternoons. Your presence was reassuring to me when I felt so far from my Florida home even after being gone so long. I have never forgotten you, our time shared as officers and the legacy you have left your wife and son and friends.
