    Officer Jeremy Bitner EOW May 28, 2012

    Police Officer Jeremy Bitner, Englewood Police Department, Colorado

    Police Officer Jeremy Bitner was struck and killed by a drunk driver while making a traffic stop at the intersection of South Broadway Street and East Belleview Avenue at approximately 12:05 am.

    During the initial stop he had the driver exit the vehicle. As the two stood in the roadway next to the car a drunk driver sideswiped Officer Bitner's patrol car and then struck him and the other driver, throwing them both approximately 50 feet. A witness to the collision called 911 and followed the drunk driver as he fled the scene in his vehicle. Officers from the Littleton Police Department arrested him several minutes after the crash due to the witness' actions.

    Officer Bitner and the citizen were both transported to Swedish Medical Center in critical condition. The officer succumbed to his injuries approximately 11 hours later.

    Officer Bitner was a U.S. Army veteran. He had served with the Englewood Police Department for 7-1/2 years and had previously served with the Elbert County Sheriff's Office for six months. He is survived by his wife and two children.
