End of Watch: Thursday, May 22, 2003

Trooper Newton was killed when his patrol car, a 2003 Ford Crown Victoria, was struck from behind while he was making a traffic stop on the shoulder of I-70 near Odessa, Missouri at 0700 hours. The patrol car burst into flames upon impact and Trooper Newton was trapped inside. The driver of the vehicle he had stopped and the driver of the truck that struck his patrol car were both injured in the accident.

I thought they had a recall and fixed this problem.

The Missouri trooper had a 2003 CV, but it still could have been manufactured before Ford announced they were adding the shield as standard equipment.

Hopefully, his cruiser did not have the shield; if he did... maybe those Impala's are not so bad after all! :roll:
