Mississippi Trooper MSgt Steven HoodMay 29, 2009
Details few in Miss. trooper's pursuit death
By MONTE WILLIAMS
A Mississippi trooper was killed tonight during a pursuit on Miss. 370 at the Lee-Prentiss County line.
Master Sgt. Steve Hood, a member of the Mississippi Highway Safety Patrol since 1982, was pronounced dead at the scene by the Lee County coroner, reports say.
Hood’s car left the highway and hit a tree. Apparently, his was the only vehicle involved in the crash near Brice's Crossroads Military Park.
It’s unknown whom Hood was chasing or for what reason. A news release from the patrol late tonight said investigators have located the other vehicle.
"Witnesses have identified the vehicle," the release said. "The investigation continues into the identity and arrests" of the subjects.
The patrol is asking the public for information on the chase and for tips on who might have been involved.
Lee and Prentiss County sheriff's officials and highway patrol reconstructionists are at the scene, investigating, the report said. The state's Bureau of Investigation is also helping.
"He was an exemplary trooper and a famly man, said Col. Michael Berthay. "Steve was appointed to the highway patrol in 1982 and assigned for most of his career to Troop F and was originally from the Jericho communtiy."
"Words cannot measure or state the loss that the patrol and patrol families feel tonight."
About a year ago, a fellow trooper helped save Hood's life after a logging accident on Hood's land.
A large limb crashed into Hood's head as he was piling up debris on his tractor.
Trooper Ray Hall happened to be patrolling near Hood's home when the call for help went out and was the first trooper to arrive on the scene.
Hall realized the severity of the situation, called in the helicopter crew and used his state-issued GPS to bring the helicopter directly to Hood.
Hall, who is still on the force, was recognized for his efforts.
Hood is survived by his wife and three children.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.
Certainly there is no hunting like the hunting of man and those who have hunted armed men long enough and like it, never really care for anything else.

"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.

Police Officers put themselves at risk for strangers every day. Some do not make it home to their families. Next time you think of saying something negative about the police, remember...YOU are one of the strangers.
