Trooper Galvin was the first female to be killed in the line of duty. On May 24, 1979, Galvin was investigating a fatal accident East of Pueblo involving a motorcycle and a car. At 10:20 p.m., Galvin stepped into the roadway to check a small bit of information she needed. She was struck by an Eastbound vehicle. Galvin was taken to St. Mary Corwin Hospital in Pueblo. However, her injuries were too severe, and she died the next afternoon.
