MARIN COUNTY, CA (March 15, 2018) – A young deputy lost his life when his patrol car hit a tree off Highway 1, on Thursday morning.
 
The victim was identified as 24-year-old Ryan Zirkle, who was responding to a 911 call in the area, early Thursday. Zirkle lost control of his patrol car on Highway 1, just north of Point Reyes Station.
