Richard Allen Hall, 45, was on his way home but technically on duty about 5:15 p.m. Wednesday when he attempted a U-turn on U.S. 280 and his patrol car was struck by a Ford F-150, said Gena Bilbo, Chatham County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman.

The 14-year veteran of the department died on the scene. The truck driver had minor injuries.
