Officer Down: Drunk driver in “killing machine” takes the life of young corrections sergeant
Pasco County, Florida

Statistically speaking, in the United States, nearly thirty people die every single day due to car accidents where alcohol played a factor in the crash. Sadly, we lost a young correctional sergeant based out of Florida last week due to a drunk driver.

On December 12th, 2019, Florida Department of Corrections Sergeant Lauren Lee was killed in an accident involving an intoxicated driver. The sergeant, who was only 30-years-old at the time of her death, was on her way back home from work when her vehicle was struck.
