N.M. Officer Hit By Car, Dies of Injuries
December 09, 2013
Sandoval County, N.M., sheriff’s Sgt. Robert Baron, who was injured Thursday while investigating a weather-related crash on Interstate 25, died Friday afternoon despite what Sheriff Doug Wood told the Albuquerque Journal was a “gallant” effort by hospital staff to save his life.
The 47-year-old Baron, an eight-year veteran of the Sheriff’s Office, had been listed in critical but stable condition after being hit by a car while investigating a crash on roads made dangerous by a snowstorm that hit the state.
Baron was outside his patrol car when he was hit by a car on northbound I-25 near San Felipe Casino, authorities said.
