Officer Michael Buckner was killed in an automobile accident on S.R. 127 while returning from an investigation at approximately 0050 hours.

The department SUV he was driving went off of the roadway on a curve two miles north of Decherd.

At the time of the accident there was a severe snow storm which caused almost zero visibility. It is believe that the snow storm, and a large amount of slush on the roadway, were contributing factors.

Officer Buckner had served with the Decherd Police Department for 7 years.

The loss of a friend, the loss of a man. Even if his life was short, his efforts remain. My friendship with him is the same. With new officers taken on the task the memories of his standards are here to last. A big tree and a snowy night changed your life but your friends still carry your light. With every day your thoughts are here and all your brothers still care. Thanks to your efforts we are safe and your brothers will see you again one day.
