I heart goes out to the family of Senior officer Robert Bingaman and the Asheville Police Department. All are in my prayers.
Senior officer Robert Bingaman was killed when his cruiser when off the Jeff Bowen Memorial Bridge on Interstate 240. The detail of the cause of the accident are not known at this time. His cruiser landed near Riverside drive. It is the first officer of Asheville Police Department killed in the duty in 41 years. It is always sad to hear of a fine officer dying in the service of his community. The bridge where the accident happen is named after a firefighter for the Asheville Fire Department that was killed in the line of duty a few years ago in a fire at a medical building.
