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.
