Alabama Officer Killed In Funeral Escort

Tuscaloosa Police Officer Trevor Phillips, a 10-year veteran of the department and a member of its SWAT team, was killed while working as an escort for a funeral procession. 

Tuscaloosa Police Chief Steve Anderson stated that Officer Phillips was passing the procession on the left and a person “decided, apparently, that they no longer wanted to be a part of the funeral procession and decided to make a U-turn and were going to go the opposite way and unfortunately didn’t look before they did and turned in front of him and his motorcycle collided with the vehicle.”

This caused a collision in which Officer Phillips was thrown from the motorcycle.
