Sergeant Shawn Glenn Miller

On August 3, 2016, Sergeant Miller was on duty returning home from testifying in an ongoing case at the Dallas County Courthouse.  Sergeant Miller was operating his personal motorcycle, traveling southbound on Highway 169.   A vehicle travelling northbound on Highway 169 and attempting to turn left onto the I-80 onramp, entered the intersection directly in front of Sergeant Miller’s motorcycle.  Sergeant Miller’s motorcycle struck the turning vehicle and he was thrown from the cycle.  Sergeant Miller died at the scene of the collision.
