End of Watch: September 10, 2002
Officer Beryl Scott was killed in a motorcycle accident at 1510 hours, shortly after starting his shift.
He was en route to a local hospital to assist with a fatal DUI investigation when a vehicle pulled onto North Seventh Street from a parking lot directly into his path. Officer Scott’s motorcycle struck the passenger door and he was thrown over the vehicle. He was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries 30 minutes later.
The spot where Officer Scott was killed was the exact same spot where Officer Patrick Briggs was killed in a motorcycle accident on June 20, 1990, under identical circumstances.
Officer Scott had been employed with the Phoenix Police Department for ten years, and is survived by his expectant wife.
