NJ flags at half-staff to honor fallen officer
TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - July 11, 2012 (WPVI) -- Acting Gov. Kim Guadagno has ordered flags at all state buildings to be flown at half-staff to honor a southern New Jersey police officer who was killed in a crash while on duty.
The flags will be lowered Friday in tribute to Christopher Reeves.
The 40-year-old Millville officer died early Sunday when a driver - who allegedly was fleeing from police - collided with his police cruiser. The driver - who faces numerous charges - and another Millville officer were seriously injured in the accident.
Reeves' survivors include his wife, who also is a Millville police officer, and their 2-year-old son.
Guadagno - who is serving as the state's chief executive while Gov. Chris Christie is out of state - issued the directive in an executive order she signed Wednesday.
