Police Officer Toure Heywood succumbed to injuries sustained 12 years earlier when he was struck by a vehicle while conducting a traffic stop.

As he spoke to the occupants of the vehicle a second vehicle struck the first car head-on and then struck him. He was transported to a local hospital where he remained in ICU for several days.

His health continued to deteriorate as a result of the incident. On May 28th, 2015, he passed away while undergoing organ transplant surgery to replace his stomach, liver, pancreas, upper bowel and lower bowel.

Officer Heywood was a U.S. Marine Corps veteran. He had previously served as a corrections officer before joining the Georgia State University Police Department. Following the crash he became a member of the East Point Police Department where he served as a detective at the time of his passing.
