On June 27, 2010, at approximately 3:38 AM, Officer Justin McGrory, I.D. 18606, and Officer Ryan Bostrom, I.D. 18541, from Barstow Area, were on a traffic stop on northbound I-15, when a red 2009 Pontiac G6, driven by Rafael Garcia, 18, of Las Vegas, Nev., veered onto the right shoulder, clipped the right rear of the patrol vehicle, then continued and struck Officer McGrory.
Officer McGrory suffered major injuries as a result of this collision and was taken by air ambulance to St. Mary's Hospital in Apple Valley, where he succumbed to his injuries.
