Officer Mathew Mazany was struck and killed by a hit-and-run driver while assisting another officer during a traffic stop.

The vehicle that had been stopped contained a subject wanted in another jurisdiction. As the officers began to approach the car to take the person into custody another unrelated vehicle entered the area and struck Officer Mazany. The vehicle fled the scene after striking Officer Mazany but was located several hours later and the driver was taken into custody.
