June 12, 2012
A Harper County (Okla.) Sheriff's reserve deputy was killed after he lost control of his vehicle while responding to a call and crashed in Laverne.
Deputy Charley Coen's Dodge Charger left the roadway on Highway 64 about two miles west of Buffalo, and struck several large hay bales. The deputy became trapped, and rescue crews took three hours to extricate him from the vehicle, reports the Officer Down Memorial Page.

You can help no one if you kill yourself getting to the call. Not sure if this was the case but getting there is what it's all about.

This might be another sad case of just driving too fast. Terrible loss of a good officer. We don't seem to be getting the message about our driving behaviors. Let's not react with a knee-jerk now and sue Chrysler for Dodge Charger fires like we did with the Crown Victoria. We don't need to lose another good police car. Be safe.
