George August Forster

Trooper George Forster was killed in an automobile accident when a truck pulling a loaded horse trailer struck his patrol car just before midnight on State Road 3 near Paris Crossing in Jennings County.

Trooper Forster had served with the Indiana State Police for over 2½ years and was assigned to the Seymour post. He was survived by his wife and brother. In 2007, the George A. Forster Memorial Bridge over Big Graham Creek near the intersection of State Road 3 and State Road 250 in Jennings County was dedicated in his honor.
