A sheriff's deputy in Georgia was killed on his way to work this morning in a traffic crash with two suspected illegal aliens.
Deputy Loren Lilly, who had been with the Cobb County Sheriff's Office for 18 years, was pronounced dead at the scene after his Honda Accord flipped several times after being struck by a Ford Taurus.
"No one ever likes to roll up on an accident with anyone deceased on scene, or serious injuries," Marietta police officer Casey Camp told WXIA-TV. "Obviously, being in law enforcement, none of us wants to roll up and see one of our fellow officers or deputies on the scene as well."
Witnesses say the driver and passenger in the Taurus ran from the scene. Police later arrested the two, 27-year-old Joel Perea, and 23-year-old Maurilio Herrera.
Perea is charged with felony vehicular homicide, hit and run, failure to maintain a lane, and driving without a license. Herrera is charged with false report of a crime.
They're being held at the Cobb County Jail, and police say federal immigration officials have placed a hold on both.

A Cobb County Sheriff’s Deputy was killed in a Sunday morning hit and run wreck in Marietta as he was going to work.
The two suspects are in custody as deputies mourn the loss of one of their own.
Deputy Loren Lilly had been with the department for 18 years.
Just before 6 a.m., Lilly was driving his green Honda Accord south on Powder Springs Street. Police say two men driving a white Ford Taurus made contact with Lilly’s car, sending him off the road, where he flipped several times.
Lilly was pronounced dead at the scene.
“No one ever likes to roll up on an accident with anyone deceased on scene, or serious injuries,” said Marietta police officer Casey Camp. “Obviously, being in law enforcement, none of us wants to roll up and see one of our fellow officers or deputies on the scene as well."
Witnesses say the driver and passenger in the white car ran. Police later arrested the two, 27-year-old Joel Perea, and 23-year-old Maurilio Herrera.
Police say Perea is charged with felony vehicular homicide, hit and run, failure to maintain lane, and no drivers’ license. Herrera is charged with false report of a crime.
The two men are at the Cobb County Jail. Police say that immigration officials have placed a hold on both men.
Lilly, a 41-year-old Marietta resident, had worked for the sheriff's department since 1989. He was assigned to the jail division."I'm not a coward,
I've just never been tested
I'd like to think that if I was,

R.I.P my fellow officers/
That sadley brings the 2006 total so far to 144 officers killed in the line of duty.Being the best is not what always counts. What counts is always trying your best.
Remember who you are, and where you came from. That way you never get a big head.
May those that lost their lives in 9-11 RIP, for the things you did not many could do. You left so many behind so that you could save so few. For now we stand strong as one, and will not look back till the fight is done. (me)

Sure wish a lot of cities and agencies would allow officers to call ICE, upon contact with illegal aliens, before something tragic like this happens.
