On 12/18 Zachary Cottongim with Louisville Metro Police Department was struck by a vehicle while on an investigation of a vehicle on the side of the interstate. He was waiting outside his cruiser for the wrecker.

Zach left behind a wife and 2 sons. He was also a personal friend of mine from high school.

Unfortunately he succumbed to his injuries while at the hospital.

Please remember his family going through these times.

I'm sorry for your loss. We're going through a similar time at our FD for a long time member who passed from duty related cancer. Definitely takes the sparkle and joy out of the season.
