Okla. officer dies after wreck with dump truck

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…

Okla. officer dies after wreck with dump truck

Officer Down: George Green - [Highway Patrol, Oklahoma]

By PoliceOne Staff

SAPULPA, Okla. — Captain George Green succumbed to injuries sustained the previous day when his patrol car was struck by a dump truck at the intersection of Highway 97 and Turner Turnpike in Sapulpa.

Captain Green was attempting to turn left from the Turnpike onto the highway when his patrol car was T-boned by the truck.

"It's devastating," OHP Lieutenant George Brown told Fox 23. "Captain Green was a leader. He was a trooper commander over the entire Turner Turnpike, he had several troopers under his command. I personally worked for Captain Green for a number of years here in Tulsa."

Captain Green had served with the Oklahoma Highway Patrol for 31 years and was six months shy of retirement.
