R.I.P. Officer Vernell Brown, Jr.

edited 21 Jul 2015 in LODD News & Memorials

Police Officer Vernell Brown succumbed to injuries sustained five days earlier when he was struck by a car on U.S. 90, on the I-10 East split, while investigating a separate car fire.

He was training two police recruits at the scene of the vehicle fire when two other vehicles were involved in a crash on the adjacent roadway. One of the vehicles veered off the road and struck Officer Brown. He was transported to a local hospital where he remained in a coma until succumbing to his injuries.

Officer Brown had served with the New Orleans Police Department for 17 years. Officer Brown is survived by five children and his fiancee.
