Police Officer Brian DiBucci was killed after he fell approximately 100 feet from a highway overpass following a vehicle pursuit of a suspect around 3:15 a.m.

Other officers were initially involved in the vehicle pursuit of a stolen car, but the suspect vehicle crashed at the east end of the Hewitt Avenue Trestle.

Officer DiBucci was acting as backup and was approaching the scene as the other officers were taking the man into custody. Other officers noticed he had fallen when they spotted his car on an adjoining overpass and radioed him. After Officer DiBucci did not return the radio calls other officers went to investigate and discovered he had fallen.

The driver who had fled was charged with second-degree murder, eluding police, and possession of stolen property.

Officer DiBucci had served with the Everett Police Department for 1-1/2 years and had previously served with the Tenino Police Department for 2-1/2 years. He is survived by his fiancée and mother.
