It happened a little over a month ago.
Officer Randy White was trying to keep people safe. Keep them out of the way of a high-speed police chase. He almost succeeded, too.
No lives lost... except his own.
The stolen SUV he was worried about, that the other cops were chasing – it plowed into him, as he sat in his cruiser. He was declared dead at the scene.
We remember Officer Randy White, of the Bridgeport (TX) Police Department, as part of our special focus on National Police Week.
