   October 1993

Corporal Michael E. Webster died October 2, 1993, from injuries he suffered when he was struck by a drunk driver on U.S. Highway 40 in Blue Springs, Missouri, in Jackson County.

Cpl. Webster had stopped a vehicle at 3:05 a.m. on October 2, for a license violation and was talking with the driver on the shoulder of the highway. A car driven by an intoxicated driver struck the left front fender of Cpl. Webster's patrol car and the left rear of the car he had stopped. The car then hit Cpl. Webster, who was knocked onto the hood of the eastbound vehicle and carried approximately 200 feet before the vehicle stopped. Cpl. Webster was transported to Research Hospital in Kansas City by air ambulance where he died at 7:05 p.m.

The driver of the vehicle that struck Cpl. Webster, Nicholas Adams, 21, of Blue Springs, Missouri, was charged with assault on a law enforcement officer (class B felony) and driving while intoxicated. In February 1995, after a jury deliberated for three hours, Adams was convicted and sentenced to seven years in prison.

Corporal Michael E. Webster, 33, was the 17th trooper to be killed in the line of duty since 1931. He was survived by his wife, a 6-year-old daughter, and a 20-month-old son.

Knowing how much her father loved his family we know he would have been so proud of the young lady she has become.

Michael's family and all those who worked with him knew what a special person he was, we are committed that his service and the sacrifice he made will never be forgotten.
