Description
Title supplied by cataloger.
Photograph caption dated October 1, 1987 reads, "Force of car impact sent CHP officer's shoe, laces still tied, to other side of freeway." A rookie California Highway Patrol officer, Terry Wayne Autrey, 28, of Upland was killed when he was investigating a minor accident on the Long Beach Freeway in Bell. Autrey's partner, Michael R. Price, 34, was also struck, but survived. The officers were run down as they were getting back into their patrol car parked between the northbound fast lane and the center barrier after talking to the occupants of three cars involved in an earlier non-injury collision. Autrey had been out of the academy for 16 days and was being trained by Price when the incident occurred.
