Russell Croxton

Police Officer Russell Croxton was struck and killed by a tractor-trailer while conducting a traffic stop on US 167 near Robert Lane shortly after 1:00 pm.

The vehicle he was pulling over stopped in the right travel lane of the four-lane highway. As Officer Croxton spoke with the driver a tractor-trailer failed to move over and struck the back of his patrol truck before striking him and the other vehicle.

Officer Croxton was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

Officer Croxton's father, Sergeant Raymond Croxton, was killed in the line of duty on May 23, 1978, when he was involved in a crash during a vehicle pursuit while serving with the Ruston Police Department.

I got to know Russell as we sat right next to one another for 12 weeks during the police academy training in Bossier Parish back in 2010. He was quiet and committed to his job as an LEO.

R.I.P., Russell.
