VIDEO: Tennessee Officer Killed in Roadside Collision

Metro Nashville police officer, Michael Petrina, 25, was killed on Interstate 65 after being struck by a motorhome while investigating a prior collision.

The Tennessean is reporting that Officer Petrina was trying to direct traffic on Interstate 65 Saturday morning after a pickup overturned while taking the on-ramp from Old Hickory Boulevard. The motorhome's driver, Dean Joseph Diver, 71, of Key Largo, Fla., rounded a blind curve on the interstate, tried to navigate between Petrina's patrol car and a Tennessee Department of Transportation help truck — both parked on the interstate — and slammed into Petrina.

My prayers are with the Petrina Family & the Nashville Police Department. Earth has no sorry that Heaven cannot heal. May he rest in peace.
