Honoring Fallen Officer Chris Kilcullen
Eugene, Oregon Police Department's Motorcycle Officer Chris Kilcullen made a stop on Hwy. 126 going east. A woman had been driving erratically. He had not finished putting the kickstand down and dismounting his bike, when she shot and killed him. To say she was mentally unstable would be an understatement. The horrible actions took place in Springfield, Oregon which is next to Eugene, Oregon, but they are both in Lane County. Officer Chris Kilcullen left a wife and two children. Many in the community really looked up to him, and he will be greatly missed. The section of Hwy. 126 where he had been killed was named Officer Chris Kilcullen Memorial Highway. I'm glad he was given this honor.
