Officer Brian Law and Officer Juan Gonzalez were killed in a single vehicle crash while responding to an accident call on Highway 99, near Bethel Avenue, in Kingsburg at approximately 6:00 am.

Both officers were riding in the same cruiser responding to the accident, which had been incorrectly reported in the northbound lanes of Highway 99. As they responded to the scene they came upon the accident in the southbound lanes. The patrol car swerved in an attempt to avoid striking the previous collision, struck the guardrail, and overturned. They both suffered fatal injuries in the crash.

The officers had gone through the 27 weeks of training at the CHP Academy together in 2008, and became close friends as well as partners over the past six years.

Officer Gonzalez is survived by his mother, Maria Gonzalez, sister, Sandra Gonzalez.
