CHP Officer Killed in Collision

Saturday, April 17, 1993

Officer John N. McVeigh, Jr. was responding to an injury collision when he lost control of his patrol car as it rounded a curve. McVeigh’s patrol car spun into the opposing lane of traffic where it was struck broadside by an oncoming pick-up. Although McVeigh was securely belted in his seat and his air bag deployed, the force of the impact killed the 38-year-old officer instantly. Officer McVeigh was a 13-year veteran of the CHP and a 1992 King City Officer of the Year.
