Remembering Trooper Charles A. Fry

Please take a moment to include Trooper Charles A. Fry in your thoughts today.

Trooper Fry was on routine patrol of Interstate 25 when he contacted a northbound vehicle south of the Douglas County line September 26, 1987. He was issuing a traffic citation when a drunken driver struck Fry as he stood by the vehicle. The drunk driver failed to stop and was later apprehended by another Trooper. The suspect was convicted of vehicular homicide and is now residing in the Colorado State Penitentiary.

Fry entered the Patrol May 3, 1976.
