Edward Norman Dare

Deputy Sheriff Edward Dare was killed in an automobile crash while responding to backup officers from a neighboring agency.

The officers were searching for a DUI driver who was brandishing a handgun at approximately 6:20 a.m. While en route, Deputy Dare's vehicle left the roadway and landed partially submerged in a drainage ditch. When Deputy Dare failed to arrive at the original call, officers began to search for him.

At 8:00 a.m., a citizen called to report a patrol car in the ditch at 2300 West and 1600 North (Current day Baver Road) near the Cedar City Regional Airport, and rescue crews arrived within minutes. Deputy Dare was pronounced dead at the scene.

Deputy Dare was a U.S. Navy veteran and had served with the Iron County Sheriff's Office for five years. He is survived by his wife and mother.
