Officer Randall L. Fletcher was struck and killed by a car just before midnight on August 30, 1977, while helping a truck driver display emergency flares on the North Freeway. Officer Fletcher’s patrol car was in the left lane of the freeway as he worked with the trucker to place flares around the truck. A car, whose driver was later found to be intoxicated, plowed into the officer, wedging him between it and the patrol car. Officer Fletcher was pronounced dead shortly after midnight at a nearby hospital.
