Robert Warren Crapse, Sr.

Sergeant Bobby Crapse was killed when his patrol vehicle was struck head-on by a wrong-way driver on I-95, near mile marker 97 in Chatham County, at approximately 2:15 a.m. The subject was driving without lights.

He had just completed a traffic control assignment and was driving back to the north part of Bryan County when the crash occurred. Sergeant Crapse's canine partner sustained very minor injuries in the crash.

Sergeant Crapse had served with the Bryan County Sheriff's Office for 13 years and was posthumously promoted to Sergeant. He is survived by his wife and three children.

In June 2013, Public Safety Way was renamed Sgt. Robert W. Crapse Drive.

It’s been 7 heartbreaking years since you left us. God, I miss you like crazy. So many things have changed, I wish I could call and tell you all about them. I’m following your footsteps even though they are huge ones to fill. I worked my 12 hour shift today as I told you I would. I stopped numerous vehicles, mostly due to speeding. I didn’t get any dui drivers but a good friend/fellow brother did, it was for you! Mom and dad are holding up, it’s hard with it being Fathers Day tomorrow. I hope you know I never forget about you. I keep your picture with me, I talk to you all the time. I love you Bobby! My big brother, my hero, my angel! Continue to guide me, continue to protect me, be there waiting for me when he calls me home!
