    Suspect Info: Not available

    Officer Nguygen and Officer Shawn Carson were killed when their patrol truck drove off of the Hackensack River Bridge and plunged 45-feet into the Hackensack River during a period of heavy fog at 8:20 pm.

    The officers had driven across the drawbridge to place flares on the Newark side to warn drivers about a problem with the bridge's operations. As they set the flares the bridge's operator opened the span to allow a tugboat to pass underneath. The bridge's safety bar and warning lights, which had not been functional for two days, failed to activate when the span opened.

    As the officers returned to the Jersey City side of the bridge their vehicle drove off of the open portion of the span and fell to the river below, killing both officers. Officer Carson was pulled from the water two hours after the incident and taken to University Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

    Officer Nguygen had served with the Jersey City Police Department for 6 years.

    R.I.P my fallen brother.
    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)
