Alabama Police Officer Killed in On-the-Job Collision with Big Rig

29-year-old Pell City, Alabama police officer, Kenneth Surles, was making his nightly rounds in his patrol car when he was struck by a diesel truck. The big rig was driven by James Scogin, who investigators claim failed to yield at an intersection before colliding with Surles’ patrol car. Scogin has been indicted on several criminal charges in the case, and the Surles family’s lawsuit against both Scogin and his employer, Hugghins Transportation, is moving forward.
