Sad, maybe he would be alive if he was wearing his seat belt, after all it's the law and I see to many officers breaking the law in their cop cars. Maybe they are above the law? Not.

This is most definately not a time for judgments & criticiam, this is a time for compassion, caring & prayers, not only for this man, his wife & his child who will not have their daddy for their 1st Christmas, but also for the other emergency personnel who have worked with this young man.
Please find it in your hearts to pray & not point fingers & yes, I agree, someone will learn from this, I hope it is some of these readers!

He was on probably the most dangerous road in the state. If you've never driven Prue Road, you need to do so, only do it during the day time and stay on your side of the road while going around curves. Ok he wasn't wearing a seat belt, but how many people truly don't wear theirs. It is a sad situation all around. So don't spout junk just to do so.

Yes, this young deputy should have been wearing his seat belt but that does not alleviate the grief that his wife and family are feeling right now. Please pray for this young family, especially losing their husband/father right before Christmas. May God bless and comfort them during this difficult time.

Please be respectful with your comments. This deputy was young and leaves behind a young wife and baby. Sure he made a mistake not wearing a seatbelt, but those of you who are judging him-are you perfect????

State statute has a section where LEO's do not have to wear a seat belt while on duty so you can throw the seat belt crap out of the window as well as drivers ed it is called LEDT. Prayers and thoughts are with your family your watch is over now.

I work with his wife Amber, and we are all crushed to hear this news. Our prayers are with Amber, her baby daughter, and may God bless her and get her through this awful time at the holidays.

Thank you James!!! At least someone here KNOWS the law! If you cant have compassion then please shut your mouths! This is a very young deputy and I KNOW personally the men and women he worked with. I may add that I worked for Osage County and they DO get proper training!

For argument sake, Let say the young officer was wearing his seat belt, needed to release it for just a moment, "FOR WHAT EVER REASON" Then came up on the corner at a high rate of speed before he had time to re-buckle, then the crash.
I believe that maybe several of us has unbuckled while moving at highway speeds, then re-buckled, lucky without having a wreck. I know I'll never do it again.
Jesus now holds this young man in his loving arms, and I hold his family in my prayers.

Good point James, I'm glad you posted that to educate some of the ignorant. Hopefully that will put a stop to the disrespectful comments. I knew Adam personally and it just breaks my heart to think of the sadness his family is going through right now. Thank you

Thoughts and prayers to this officer's family and friends, and to his fellow officers. I'm sure they are all hurting more than we can imagine and need support right now more than anything else.
