Justin Michael Terry

Detective Justin Terry was killed when a steel height-restriction beam fell onto his department vehicle on U.S. 95, near Route 215, at about 7:00 am.

The beam had been installed to prevent over-height vehicles from entering the construction zone where a new overpass was being built. A tractor-trailer pulling a piece of large equipment struck the beam, causing it to fall onto Detective Terry's vehicle as he also drove beneath it.

Detective Terry had served with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department for 21 years and was assigned to the Homicide Sex Crimes Bureau. He is survived by his wife and two sons.

The true measure of a person
is not found in the
might of their arm,
their wealth
or their power –
it is found in the strength
of their character.

There is no greater testimony to
ones character, than ones
willingness to sacrifice all,
in the noble quest of
providing protection to all
whom they serve.
