Shielding Our Protectors

FOP of Ohio Mourns the Loss of One of Their Own
Posted On: Jan 24, 2017

January 24, 2017

For Immediate Release

 

"Today has been a tragic day. First, a driver was killed in an accident along Interstate 90 near Cleveland. Then, Police Officer David Fahey responded to that accident and in the process of diverting traffic away was hit and killed by another driver. The driver then fled the scene of the accident.

 

I mourn this loss with our police brothers and sisters in Cleveland and I urge anyone with information about the hit and skip driver to contact local authorities.

 

While we don’t yet know the exact circumstances, I urge everyone to slow down when you see the lights of emergency personnel. I urge all drivers to avoid using devices like phones which distract you while driving. And I urge people to slow down; observe both road conditions and the speed limit. Getting to your destination a fewer seconds faster doesn’t mean much, but the decisions you make on the roadways can literally be the difference between life and death.

 

This senseless death of a Cleveland Police Officer reminds us all how dangerous policing can be and we ask that you join us in praying for the family, friends and colleagues of our fallen Brother."

 

Fraternally,

 

Jay McDonald

President, FOP of Ohio
