Jimmie Harold White, II

Trooper Jimmie White succumbed to injuries sustained earlier in the day when his police motorcycle struck a patrol car while escorting a motorcade at 1:00 p.m.

The officers were escorting the Blue Angels pilots and flight crew from a Little Rock hotel to the Little Rock Air Base. The motorcade had just reached the base, and the lead patrol car was turning left into the gate. Trooper White, who was blocking intersections along the route, approached on the left-hand side of the motorcade and struck the patrol as it made the left-hand turn. Trooper White was flown to a local hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries the same evening.

Trooper White had served with the Arkansas State Police for seven years. He is survived by his wife and parents.

I was on scene, and witnessed when this unfortunate accident occurred. I was the Superintendent of Aerospace Medicine, coordinating medical coverage for the Air Show event. Being the first medical person on scene, I immediately called for life flight. I forever have this mishap etched in my mind. I remember helping to stabilize Trooper White for the helicopter. I wish that the outcome would have been better. My heart and prayers continue to go out to the family and fellow officers. God Bless.
