Pretty awful, doing a good deed and get hit by a car.

Man, that makes my heart hurt. She was a good woman just doing a good deed, a shame that someone else made a mistake and she took the sharp end of it. I suppose though, at least the driver is cooperating and complying with the authorities and taking responsibility. Better that than if he/she had just hit and run, any day. Even after her passing, in my eyes at least, that was perhaps a sign of respect for her that even her killer did the proper thing and has been honest and hurt for their own actions. That takes a certain level of respect and may she and her fellow officers be remembered of it, may they follow her footsteps proudly.
