Justin Todd Wollam

Officer Justin Wollam was killed when his patrol car was struck head-on by a vehicle being driven by a drunk driver.

The vehicle had been spotted earlier by an officer who attempted to stop it because it was being driven erratically. The suspect driver sped off and was pursued by the officer. After the vehicle stopped, several juveniles fled from it with officers in pursuit. Other juveniles who remained in the vehicle started to drive away again and were followed by other officers from a distance. At approximately 0400 hours, the vehicle crossed into opposing traffic on Glenn Highway where it struck Officer Wollam's patrol car. Along with Officer Wollam, the driver of the vehicle and two occupants were also killed in the accident.

Officer Wollam had been employed with the Anchorage Police Department for two years, and had been in law enforcement for a total of five years.

He is survived by his wife, 4-year-old daughter, parents, and a brother.

We miss you Officer William. I used to work with you in the Municipality of Anchorage as a legal secretary for the Administrative Hearing Officer, Tim Middleton. I have gone by the Glenn Highway at a small gravesite your wife set up and I left an American Flag at the site. Thank you for your service and sacrifice. You have not been forgotten. Rest in Peace.
