I am so sorry that this happened......You know what a few years a go an APD officer almost caused me and this other driver to have an accident due to a chase (if I remember correctly). The officer was probably going 65 mph in a 35-45 mph area. The chase was coming the opposite direction of me driving but I didn't know until I came over a hill. I had to turn on the curve immediately to keep from hitting the driver that swerved in my lane because officer swerved around in to on coming traffic to get around the person in front of him. Smh. My prayers go out to the victim and the victim's family....

I pray for the families of both Officer Joshua Sieck (who fought and served our country in Iraq) and Mrs. Culp. It's sad when trying to save a life, responding to a emergency situation, ends up costing you everything.
