They are not going to tell the public he was driving to fast and maybe texting or on the phone. I am however very sad for his family.

Why not? If Joe Schmo wrecked, the media would report the cause. People are obsessed with cause and blame any time something bad happens. Why not report the factors contributing to a cops death?!?

Yea, people like to see tragedy and comment on it. Sort of like police sometimes call their police buddies to the site of grizzly wrecks so they can "check it out".
Hell, I had 4 cruisers show up just to see what a turkey does to a car that hits it at 60 MPH.

I BELIEVE he was trying to get to a burning vehicle that was on the other side of the highway.

There was a burning vehicle on the other side of the highway. The fire men and the tow truck driver were called to the scene to put it out. Once it was out and loaded, the toe truck driver proceeded to make a uturn onto the interstate. At that point the officer who was off duty tboned the tow truck. The officer was going about 85 and he was on his phone not texting with his post. Probably calling them to see if he could help considering he was from another county. Even though the officer was speeding and talking on a device when it was supposed to be hands free, the tow truck driver was at fault too. You are not allowed to make a uturn on the highway without permission to do so. I feel sorry for both sides. And especially for the officers family because his life was taken. Rather he was a officer or not. What if it was a average Joe and that average Joe happened to be your family member? You wouldn't want people badgering them or making statements unless they knew the facts. Oh and the officer was not drunk. Nobody was

And where did u get this information? He was traveling 85? Did u complete accident reconstruction techniques at the scene? Also there is no hands free cell phone law in Ky. That law is a fed law and applies to commercial vehicle operators. Once again, someone who does not facts is posting information they have no knowledge of and is not even a logical assumption.

Gotta love the first few posts on this thread. So sadly typical of the need to create drama and contention where none exists in this backwards town. Forget facts, y'all would rather speculate, create and perpetuate rumors because they are usually way more interesting and better to gossip about than the plain truth and facts of the situation.

Please people, a life has been lost. Regardless of your opinion of the law enforcement here, have respect, sympathy and compassion for all those loved ones, family and friends that will be mourning the loss of a good young man, a man who chose to commit his life to an often dangerous career in public service, and sadly, a young life taken way too soon. My heart goes out to those left to pick up the pieces and try to make sense of this tragedy.

Thank you for your comments and prayers. The magnitude of the prayers, support, love and compassion showered upon Trooper Tribby's parents, wife, family and friends negate any attempt to disrespect a good and decent man.
