Circumstances

Cst. McFadden was operating moving radar on Hwy #401 in the Chatham area. He had a Michigan vehicle stopped and was writing a ticket when a vehicle struck his cruiser from behind at over 150 kmph. The force of the impact drove his cruiser into the rear of the Michigan car crushing the cruiser from both ends. Jim died from his injuries on New Years Eve.


Postscript

The driver of the vehicle who killed Constable McFadden, was charged with first degree murder, partly due to a suicide note he left at his residence.
