Emily Jewett Morgenroth
Birth: Dec. 5, 1970
Ohio, USA
Death: Oct. 17, 1997
Del Paso Heights
Sacramento County
California, USA

Officer Emily Morgenroth, 26, of the Sacramento Police Department, was responding to the assistance of other officers who were on a felony vehicle-stop, when a DUI driver pulled into the path of her patrol car. Officer Morgenroth had been an officer for 2 years. Rest in peace Emily.

Investigators say the blood alcohol level of the driver of the pickup involved in a collision that killed a Sacramento police officer Friday night in North Sacramento was more than double the legal limit.

Chris Brown, 33, of North Sacramento, who is recovering at UC Davis Medical Center from shoulder injuries from the crash, has been charged with drunken driving and could face vehicular manslaughter charges in connection with the death of 26-year-old Officer Emily Morgenroth, authorities say.

Brown's blood alcohol content was reported at 0.17, more than twice the 0.08 legal limit in California.

Morgenroth's death is the first within the Sacramento Police Department since April 25, 1991 when Officer Michael Gartrell, 37, died after his patrol car smashed into a concrete abutment at Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Highway 99 during a pursuit of a suspected drunken driver.
