ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Police say an Englewood officer struck by a suspected drunken driver during a traffic stop has died.
Englewood Police Chief John Collins made the announcement Tuesday. Jeremy Bitner was a seven-year veteran of the department.
Bitner pulled over a driver for a traffic violation shortly after midnight Monday and both were standing outside the patrol car when they were struck by an SUV.
Police say the SUV drove off. Officers found him several miles away.
