Photo of the squad car. Doesn't even look that bad. Must have taken a nasty bounce. Prayers to his family, friends, brothers, sisters...

And I'm sure the FD prob did a lot of the damage making entry to the car. I wonder if maybe he had an underlying medical condition? Sometimes some people will have unknown or undetected aneurysms starting and a tramatic event ruptures it. I'm merely speculating. To be 63 years old and go out like that just sucks.

There's easily 18" of cabin intrusion at the driver door there. That's plenty.

I suppose you're right. Bad break I guess. Sucks.

63 years old and 30 years on the job. Godspeed Ofc. Morrissy, and prayers to his surviving family.

Word of mouth is a possible cardiac event that occurred immediately before or after the accident. My partner's fiancée (a police officer) works a part time gig with an Oak Forest guy. Very sad.
