Please take a moment to include Trooper James K. Farris in your thoughts today.
Trooper Farris was killed November 29, 1980 while pursuing an eastbound traffic violator near Frisco on Interstate 70. During the pursuit, the patrol car went out of control, ran off the road, and rolled. Farris was wearing his seatbelt, but the force of the rollover was so severe that he sustained critical injuries. He died a short time later at Summit Medical Center in Frisco.
Farris entered the Patrol August 6, 1979.
