Taylor Officer Dies After Hit-And-Run - Detroit Local News Story - WDIV Detroit
TAYLOR, Mich. -- A Taylor police officer died Tuesday after being struck in a hit-and-run crash while assisting a driver whose vehicle stalled.
Taylor police are seeking the public’s help to identify the hit-and-run driver and vehicle.
The crash happened at 8:59 p.m. on the shoulder of westbound Interstate 94 at Monroe in Taylor.
Police told Local 4 that the slain officer was identified as Lt. Dan Kromer. The auxiliary officer was assisting a motorist whose vehicle had stalled. Witnesses said Kromer and the idled car were hit by a white car.
Police said the hit-and-run car fled west on I-94 and exited at Telegraph Road.
The white car is described as a late 1990s or early 2000 model Ford Crown Victoria, Mercury Grand Marquis or a similar-looking model, police said.
Investigators said the vehicle will have heavy damage to the front end, passenger-side headlight and turn signal, and heavy damage to the windshield.
Police said the car could have maroon paint that came from the crash with the stalled car.
A witness told police that the suspect car had a Michigan “sunset-style” license plate.
Kromer died early Wednesday morning from injuries he sustained from the hit-and-run. The driver of the stalled vehicle was not injured.
The accident had the right lanes of westbound I-94 at Telegraph Road shut down.
Local 4 has learned Kromer he has been on the auxiliary force, which is usually the part-time reserves of a regular police force, for more than 20 years.
Auxiliary officers are required to undergo 220 hours of police training and they can carry a weapon, assist motorists and make citizen's arrests.
Kromer's death is the second on the Taylor police force this summer. Cpl. Matthew Edwards, 31, was killed in a gun battle in July during a check on a report of a home invasion.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Taylor Police Department at 734-287-6611.

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.

On a footnote....My FOP Chapter put out some saddening news about how Lt. Kromers wife learned of this trajedy. Apparently Mrs. Kromer learned of her husbands death by reading a Facebook posting made by an officer from a neighboring agency. I cannot imagine the pain she must have felt to read it that way.Insert witty comment and disclaimer here.

Rest in peace , Lt. Kromer. Condolences to family , friends and colleagues. It saddens me greatly that his wife was informed of her husband's passing by reading about it on a Facebook posting. Think people.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.
