Deputy Cooper Dyson Dies in Crash on Duty on 112th Street East Near Golden Given Road East
TACOMA, WA (December 31, 2019)—A deputy responding to a domestic abuse incident tragically died in Saturday’s crash along 112th Street East near Golden Given Road East.
Around 3:00 a.m., a person contacted police about a child being attacked inside a home on 113th Street South in Parkland.
Det. Ed Troyer with the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department said officers subsequently radioed for assistance since the suspected had been assaulting them, which demanded more backup.
Deputy Cooper Dyson responded immediately. However, things took a turn for the worse as he drove to the scene.
Five minutes later, another 911 call came in. A witness reporting a vehicle that had crash into a building in the 1300 block of 112th Street East.
Once paramedics and police arrived, they found a Pierce County Sheriff patrol car and Deputy Dyson deceased upon arrival.
According to Troyer, Dyson most likely struck some water, hydroplaned and barreled into the building before his car ruptured into flames.
Dyson, who leaves behind a 2-year-old son and his pregnant wife, had been with the department since 2018.
