Okay enough with slandering the Officers...You guys have no clue what happend and neither do I, however there are people on here constantly slandering the Officers that put their life on the line for even you dombasses on here that talk shit about them...Drug test is mandatory and yes even speeding police officers get tickets....The Officer involved Im sure is already paying the price...hell imagine if you took someones life? The truth will come out yes but until then shut up....

People like you are "in the dark" even if the street lights are on. Reserve your comments to something you know something about.

I can see how this could happen, that hill is the most dangerous one that I have been on. They really need to look into fixing that road at that point. Sad that this happened, but common since you don't walk down the road right below a huge hill at 5am!

The sun would be coming up at that time so he should have had time to see them walking down the street. There aren't side walks on that road so i would be careful to fault the victim when it is probably more like the officer was speeding.
Seriously?? At 515 am?? You really don't know what happened, so why not get facts before you open your mouth and declare your stupidity? Anyone who lives in that area knows that to be a dangerous place for vehicles, much less pedestrians. I'm sure not pro-Catoosa police...they do tend to be rude, etc; however, we don't know what happened here, so let's let the authorities sort it out and pray for a family who has suffered a loss.

There are no lights down this road to turn off or on. The road is quite narrow and dangerous even in the daylight. I am sorry for the officer who has to live with this forever and I am sorry for the family of the woman who lost her life. Hopefully, there are no children involved who just lost a mother.

It would appear the officer was moving too fast and too quiet to correct the vehicle and miss the middle of the road. huh. I do feel sorry for the police officer. This will haunt him the rest of his life. Gosh, we have all walked down a foggy street in the early morning, the poor girl. Sad. Very Sad.

I HAD BUDDY THAT WAS A CATOOSA COP FOR YEARS, AND LEFT CAUSE THEY WOULDNT FOLLOW POLICY AND RULES AND WERE BREAKING THEM ALL THE TIME. I HAVE FAMILY MEMBERS THAT ARE IN LAW INFORCEMENT FOR MAYES COUNTY, ONE IS A HIGHWAY PATROL AND THE OTHER A LOCAL COP. I DONT LIKE TO TALK BAD ABOUT COPS BUT THERE ARE THOSE ONES THAT GIVE ALL A BAD NAME CAUSE THEY THINK CAUSE THEY MIGHT BE A COP THAT THEY CAN SPEED OR DO WHATEVER WHENEVER.

How do you know the couple was not drunk and walking home from a night of partying?? Hmm? That could just as easily be the cause.
Or they could have been leaving from a prayer meeting, drunk on Jesus.

That hill is dangerous enough in a vehicle, I couldn't imagine walking in the middle of the road right there. I'm always waiting to get smacked head-on when driving over that hill because who knows what's on the other side! YOU HAVE TO GO SLOW!
Sad day :(
Yep, speed equals reaction time.......speed will be a factor. That's 35 mph I believe.

Exactly, if its so dangerouts though and EVERYONE knows it, should'nt he be cautious while traveling over the hill. Fact is, they people probably shouldnt have been in the road and the cop was probably speeeding. He didnt hit his breaks because then they could determine how fast he was going by the skid marks. One point, i've almost hit many things in the road as have many of us, i always hit the breaks from reaction, he must have seen them at the last possible second. Does anyone know the speed limit on that hill? All parties should be drug/alcohol test ASAP.

They will just say it was dark and not his fault and that they should have been walking somewhere else. NOW, if it weren't a police officer and it was an average joe they would arrest the joe and charge with vehicular manslaughter charges and lock that person up and ruin their life. Yet, if you are an officer you get paid leave.
this was an accident, and it doesn't matter if it was a policeman or not, this was a hard situation, no one is expecting to come up over a hill and see someone smack dab right in the middle of the road at 5 in the morning. and it is not true that just because he was an officer that he got off scot-free. laypeople have vehicular accidents where someone dies and they don't get charged with manslaughter. i have known incidents where this is true. and imagine what the policeman must be thinking and feeling, this is tragic and a horrible thing for anyone to go through, just so sad and terrible. he couldn't have anticipated that kind of thing to happen, it was an accident of terrible proportions.

The speed limit is 35 even at night you would have plenty of braking time unless you were speeding..., the other person that lived to tell the tale knows the truth ..hopefully the car had a dash cam. The truth will come out...
