Rocky Mount Officer/US National Guardsman
Popular Rocky Mount officer killed in crash
Patrolman Jason Maxey died Saturday in a two-vehicle collision on U.S. 220 in Roanoke.
By Jessica Marcy
A popular Rocky Mount police patrolman and U.S. serviceman was killed in a two-vehicle wreck on U.S. 220 early Saturday morning, police said.
Jason Maxey, 34, was killed in the wreck, according to Rocky Mount Lt. W.A. Engel.
The Rocky Mount resident had a reputation as an outgoing officer who was especially strong at investigative work. He also served in the U.S. Navy and the Army National Guard. Last February, he completed an 18-month mission in Kosovo with the National Guard, Engel said.
"He enjoyed life," Engel said. "He enjoyed his jobs, whether in law enforcement or the military because he enjoyed helping people."
Roanoke police responded to a call shortly before 2 a.m. Saturday about a two-vehicle wreck in the southbound lanes of U.S. 220 between Elm Avenue and Franklin Road, spokeswoman Aisha Johnson said.
Each vehicle was driven by a man, and there were no passengers in either car.
Maxey was pronounced dead at the scene. The other driver was taken to Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital, Johnson said. Police did not release his name. Johnson said that the accident remains under investigation.
Maxey was not on duty at the time of the incident and was not driving a police vehicle, Engel said.
The incident shut down all three southbound lanes of U.S. 220 between Elm Avenue and Franklin Road until shortly before 11 a.m. Saturday.
Maxey grew up in Bedford and was a healthy person who enjoyed weight lifting, Engel said.
During his six years with the Rocky Mount Police Department, he received several awards and commendation letters from law enforcement officers, residents and administrative personnel. In 2006, he received a Mothers Against Drunk Driving award for officers who are good at placing DUI charges.
He had finished Special Weapons and Tactics training with the Los Angeles Police Department at the end of September.
"He was a people person. He could talk to anybody and everybody," Engel said. "He was a great guy and a great friend and he will be missed by everyone."
Funeral arrangements will be made by Flora Funeral Service in Rocky Mount.
Engel said he was sure the police department would play a large part in the service, adding that several surrounding jurisdictions have already called to offer assistance.
"We haven't had a chance to take a breath," Engel said. "We're just basically supporting the family and brothers and sisters in law enforcement who have shown concern."Molly Weasley makes Chuck Norris eat his vegetables.
