LOUISVILLE, Ky. — On Oct. 7, 2006, Louisville Metro Police Officer Kenten Measle was driving to work — speeding, investigators determined later — when he swerved into an emergency lane on Interstate 64 West and struck and killed Donnie Puente, a father who was putting gas into a friend's stranded vehicle.

At the time, Measle was in uniform, driving his take-home cruiser and listening to his police radio.
