One more. This, I think, is a very cool picture. Although the unit number is unknown, the story is as follows: This big rig driver rounded a downhill curve on Route 20 in Yuba County only to find traffic stopped ahead. He swerved to avoid the vehicles and struck a rock embankment, which caused the truck-tractor to overturn. One person was injured. Accident investigated by Officers Lewis Pond and Danny Williams.

Regarding the Modesto photos, aside from discovering two new photos and identifying a new unit number, check out the roof numbers! I have never seen these on any other '82.

Bad ending for #0391. Officer John Rolfes was the driver, I don't know if it was occupied at the time of the collision. Photo from eBay and info from a FB post.

Thanks for posting those. These pictures were a random find with a bit of drama involved. Fortunately, the lot being sold on eBay has been returned to its rightful owner. The executor of the officers will and I have been in contact and she will be sending scans of all the crash pictures and the newspaper article about the crash.

I am very interested in knowing how many of the '82's made it out alive. Between all the stories of Mustangs being grounded when it rained, twitchy at speed, on curves, etc, I have a feeling there are quite a few that didn't make it.

I have a couple more crash pictures that I wI'll scan and post when I can.

I worked with Officer John Rofles in the Westminster office.
He was a great guy, tall, funny.
I believe this accident happened before I got to Westminster area from West LA area.
I transferred to Garberville area Feb. 1986. While in Garberville one evening, I stopped a guy for speeding on Hwy 101.
He had a citation in his pocket issued to him from John Rofles just a few hours prior to my contact with him HA

He then was signed into the exclusive club of the Highway Patrol by given another citation by yours truly.

John had transferred to the Yreka office at some point. I ran into him there.
He retired out with cancer and died in 2009 or 2010. I cannot remember the date.
I was one of the last to visit him in the hospital. It was sad to see him like that. He was a great guy.
