Deputy Down, Hendry Co FL
HENDRY COUNTY: A Hendry County deputy was killed in what the Florida Highway Patrol calls a "freak accident" Tuesday morning.
Sergeant Michael Lee Horne, 45, was going off shift and had arrived at his home off Evans Road around 6 a.m.
Troopers say for some reason he failed to stop at a gate in the driveway. Horne's vehicle went through the gate and hit a garage or utility building.
Neighbor Beatrice Quintanilla says she came out to see a gaping hole in the garage and Horne's car crushed.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Horne was a 10-year veteran of the force. He had just been promoted three weeks ago.
He leaves behind two daughters, ages 9 and 11
Got a few friends that work in this county...say he was the nicest guy around. Pray for the poor kids he left behind...it says nothing about leaving behind a wife...hope he has family that can raise them.Never be afraid to do what's right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society's punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way" ~Martin Luther King, Jr

How tragic! It sounds to me like he had some kind of medical issue before the car ever struck anything. What a terrible day for those children.Pleasing nobody, one person at a time.
That which does not kill me, better start fucking running.

Rest in peace , Sgt. Horne.SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
-General Omar Bradley, United States Army
