Memorial planned for fallen Jeffco deputy
GOLDEN — A funeral will be held Monday for a Jefferson County deputy sheriff who was killed in a motorcycle crash while on duty.
A reception open only to the Baldwin family and sheriff’s department employees and their families will follow at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds.
The Colorado State Patrol says the driver of an SUV was trying to pass another vehicle in a no-passing zone on Highway 93 on Jan. 26 and hit Baldwin’s motorcycle.
Baldwin, a 27-year veteran of the department, was on duty and wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.
The driver of the SUV suffered minor injuries.
