Calif.: Few leads in death of CHP officer

As you remember these fallen officers, take comfort in recalling that they dedicated their lives to the same principles of honor, duty and courage that brought you to the badge. Such a life is truly rich. Take strength in knowing that when an officer falls, our resolve to serve those in need is not diminished. Our dedication to protecting those in danger is not weakened. Our commitment to remembering those with whom we shared the badge does not fade.

Godspeed, brothers and sisters. You fought the good fight. Now rest in peace…

Calif. -- Calls poured into local California Highway Patrol offices Thursday as news of the previous day’s death of CHP Officer Erick Manny in a car accident spread around the state.

Drivers from all over California said they saw the fatal crash on Interstate 5 near the Grapevine and the high-speed chase that led up to it, CHP Officer Greg Williams said.

Callers added a little to the scant information the CHP had about the crash, which happened around 11:30 a.m. and claimed the life of the Bakersfield father and four-year CHP veteran.
