Creighton Travis Spencer

Officer Creighton Spencer was killed in an automobile accident while responding to a reckless driver call on Battle Mountain.

He was travelling on I-80 just west of Elko, Nevada, when his 1999 Chevrolet Suburban patrol vehicle left the roadway, struck a guard rail, and then veered into the path of an oncoming tractor trailer.

Officer Spencer's father, Captain Jack Spencer, also of the Bureau of Indian Affairs, was killed in the line of duty in 1998 when he was also involved in an automobile accident on I-80 near Reno, Nevada.

Officer Spencer is survived by his wife, daughter, mother, brother, and grandparents.

Just talked to a Pasqua Yaqui PD officer about you and your father. Talked about our late night talks when you refueled in Carlin. Hope your daughter is well. She was so young when I saw you in Safeway. I will never forget that day.
